We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
'Catcher in the Rye' is in my top ten list. I put it right in that category Dylan put us in with "Like a Rolling Stone". It is as if they both voiced and validated our thoughts and gave us permission to feel right about them. We didn't just read and listen to the works, we felt them deeply.
I sound like one of those stupid NYT book reviewers on his first try. I guess what I'm trying to say is they both made us believe it was okay for us to trust our thinking. Both works were highly personal.
