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.
man, i LOVE old Astaire/Rodgers routines -- whatever it is they're doing, it has been shaped and distilled and abstracted and refined to such a degree that you know you're watching a truly unique thing happen in front of your eyes. but i guess that's why they were stars, duh.
oops --danger of commenting before the long slo wifi download --videos, i have to start 'em up (with the sound off natch) and then come back later to view it without the halt-wait-halt-wait routine. a curse of livin' way out in de sticks --
