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 guess thats why I don't go to concerts any more. The performers fart and the audience cheers. In the old days when at a concert I always had the tripping guy or gilrl doing the Gratful Dead dance in front of me for the whole concert. When I go to the movies I always have the person who already saw the movie narrating it to his friend sitting behind me. I prefer to rent the DVD's and stay home. I'm turning into any old coot.
