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.
Mark your calendars, if you have not done so already. The Scorsese film "No Direction Home" will be on PBS Sept. 26 and 27. The DVD should be available around Sept. 20 on Amazon. The No Direction Home CD is available at Amazon. The Gaslight CD is at Starbucks.
The Dylanologist and I were talking yesterday, wondering why Dylan has quit his guitar and returned to his first instrument, piano. We decided it was whim - not arthritis, as has been speculated. We also wondered whether his current touring band will ever reach the heights of his past bands. And we decided that, regardless of the interest in the Scorsese film, we'd be more interested in a current documentary about this fascinating and enigmatic character.
