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.
Absolutely no connection between the two. Just a random note from your editor (recent drawing of Bird Dog by Norman Rockwell on right):
1. Despite our name, we are not a Dylan blog, but we are very fortunate to have The Dylanologist on our highly-paid staff. We welcome his frequent or occasional thoughts on Dylan's life, work, performances, etc. Or on any other music, or any other subject.
2. Termites: This topic deserves a thoughtful essay, but not right now. We are coining, copywriting, appropriating, and otherwise using the useful term "Termites" for any person, organization, movement, concept, etc. which is, or appears to be, motivated by a desire to take a bite out of the foundations of traditional American culture, values, morals, religion, traditions, or the Constitution itself. We at Maggies aim to be part of the pesticide brigade, sprayers loaded with verbal DDT against those who would like to bring down this precious structure we have inherited and for which we Americans are blessed by having been assigned the job of custodian and steward.
