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.
Bernstein is a genius no doubt a talent in his field . I am nothing just a person that was given piano lessons during my youth. I love Bach first Rachmaninoff and Shostikovich. Glenn Gould is my idle Richter then Eugene list. Bernstein is a pompus socialiost ass . I know it is a sin to idolize someone but Glenn Gould is to me the only . I know of Horowitz and the tall lanky fellow from texas who won the Moscow prize . many great pianist for sure but Glenn is and will always be my guy.
