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.
She first met him when she was 13 and he kissed her on the lips.

Though I recognize the talent, Elvis has never been my cup of tea. Still, it continues to amaze me that 40 odd years after his death, people are still so interested in him. People that were born after he died are intense fans. I don't know of any singer, dead or alive that has the kind of following Elvis has.

Carlos Gardel, the Argentine singer and composer of tangos, died in an air crash in 1935. I am not going to claim that Gardel outranks Elvis in fans, but when you consider Gardel died over 80 years ago, he has a rather intense group of fans.
