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.

"The New Minglewood Blues," as performed by Dylan on June 24, 1996 in Differdange, Luxembourg.† The performance takes its arrangement and lyrics directly from the Grateful Dead's live act, the Dead being the authors of this particular version of a song whose roots go back to the mid-1920s Memphis blues scene.† Download Dylan's cover of the song here, or view the youtube of the Grateful Dead performing it here.† (Minglewood, or Menglewood, was a company mill town north of Memphis with a reputation for wild living.)†
