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 Museum of the City of New York has decided to perpetuate the leftist myths - the Communist Party of the USA propaganda - of the "Lincoln Brigade," which was no brigade, which mainly came from NYC, and which fought (only for a few months) under the control of the Russians and never for the army of the Spanish Republic in their civil war against Franco.
Heroes, or "useful idiots"? The facts would seem to support the latter. Report in the New York Sun.
