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.
Sorry but as an audiophile, I find internet radio, HD Radio, and satellite radio (all varieties of compressed digital) to sound shallow and discordant. Even the spoken voice is inferior in sound quality to AM.
They never give me any of the joy of music.
But people do different in their response to compressed digital (even CDs) so my subjective response will not hold for everyone else.
