    I was reading the book ReWild or Die by Peter Michael Bauer, aka Urban Scout, who is a forager, rewilder, and activist, but he gets bashed for dressing like a Portland hipster. He actually has a great chapter on dressing according to your subculture, and how the comments he gets about the apparent disconnect between his dress and his life are off the mark and irrelevant.

    So what subculture are you aspiring to represent with your costume prepared for the impeachment?
    Basically, much of Austria - Other than it's involvement in the Holocaust - works for me. Much of America does not. Other than my Mother, the family I do have that speaks to me is all in Austria. It's not as far out there as some think that I would adopt Austrian thinking over American. But I will say that Austria's role in the Holocaust I have issues with and this puts it too mildly. Rob

    Secondhand Jean's, very faded, t shirts, secondhand shoes. Clean shaven and bathed but downscale. One piece of men's Mexican silver jewelry for a statement. Rob

    OK, thanks. But honestly, I don't see the difference.

    Basically downscale casual as opposed to upscale. Now for work I dress differently - I'm talking about time off here. Rob

    If you’ve been following my posts over the nearly two decades I’ve been here, you will know that I am wired for fiscal conservatism. Yes frugal-one, I get to choose the political issue that is most important to me just as you may choose the one that’s most important to you.

    There seems to be cautious joy in the air of the neighborhood today. I had a nice chat with the Day Lead Cashier at Food City today who was excited about Trump's hole he keeps digging deeper. I stopped on the way to Food City to talk to two neighbors who say they feel relief that this long ordeal likely will soon end. It's nice to see life and animation in people.....the potential heaven ho of a wanna be dictator can do this for some people. Rob
