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.
Great trick played on coffee shop patrons in the Village, which I saw on the news this morning. Sure, it's a viral ad (funny that an ad is preceded by advertising...such is the way of media today), but it's incredibly well set up, well designed. I doubt I'll see the movie they're promoting (the original was a classic in the genre), but credit to the marketing guys who did this.
I don't believe that everyone exposed to this show took it at face value. Somebody must have spotted it for wire work from the outset and called shenanigans. what I want to know is, what effect did this one voice of reason have on the superstitious members of the crowd?
