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.
It reminds me of some of the elegant Chris Crafts of my water-skiing youth, which were made in Wisconsin, as well as the Evinrude motors which powered them. One of the reasons I liked Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade better than most of the other Indiana movies was that exciting scene where the two motor boats were chasing each other along the narrowing arrow of water between the two huge commercial ships. The other reason I liked The Last Crusade was Sean Connery as Indy's Dad. I don't know what it is about Connery, but he illuminates every movie he acts in, whether his role is big or small.
Now that he's a wicked old man, he's still immensely attractive. In Entrapment, for instance, he even steals the movie from Catherine Zeta Jones. And that's not an easy thing to do.
Chris-Crafts were never built in Wisconsin. The company had factories at one time or another in Michigan, New York, Missouri, Tennessee, Maryland, Florida, California, Italy, Ontario, Ohio, North Carolina, Taiwan, Indiana
and Washington. Source: Anthony S. Molluca with Chris Smith "Building Chris-Craft: Inside the Factories". Voyageur Press, 2010, Appendix II. ISBN 978-0-7603-3592-5. This is a superlative book, and a good look inside one of America's great companies.
