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.
I never cease to be amazed by the programs that Carnegie Hall offers each season (which runs fall-spring).
If you love adult music, I advise visitors to NYC to check out the program. Or, if you request, they will mail it. The best part is that the tickets are not expensive. It's not like going to the opera.
If I lived closer to NYC, we'd get a 10-night subscription.
The Library of Congress offers a very nice program and it's free! (Thank you fellow taxpayers for chipping in for my tickets). The drawback is they go up for grabs on certain dates and are sopped up rather quickly. I've been told though, that rush tickets are easy to get since many of those who grabbed don't go.
