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.
Current Artists have voices and musical talents comparable to any age/era yet they ought to include in their repertoire of every collection they make a rendition of a gem that came before them. Don't worry about making it 'original', just by putting it out there in a different era/age it is done. The best are done by trying to stick to the strictest interpretation of the original, in their own way they'll be original too.
The USA plugged into electricity/radio waves and got the modern show started, most notably, with the help of African Americans but everyone is in this melody.
