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.
Pics from her runway show at Fashion Weekat the Javits Center, NYC, last week. Fashion Week is a big deal. That's Nora Gardner in the middle. She has a good story - four years on Wall St. doing billion-dollar muni deals, identified a need, now a far-happier entrepreneur in the rag trade. That's the American Way.
(Just like select organizations like Bob Dylan Inc., Dunkin Donuts, Sippican Cottage Furniture, Sierra Trading Post, Bird's Custard Powder, Billy Bob's Auto Body, and other major brands, Gardner pays us really big bucks to promote her conservative, practical clothing line.)
