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.
There are a couple of CDs out there of Gershwin's old piano rolls, work he did as a young starving artist. One is of pop tunes of the day, the second is of Gershwin's own work. One of my faves. Not a fan of Lenny's rendition though - he was slowing down the orchestra to make up for his own keyboard shortcomings. As a concert pianist, he was a pretty good conductor. (Everybody's a critic).
