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.
This is the official Commissioning of Maggie's Farm.
Breathlessly awaited by doubtless tens of millions of readers worldwide, Maggie's Farm will address many compelling topics, but promises to never attempt to unpack, interpret, deconstruct, or otherwise do harm to any Dylan song. All we promise is that Bird Dog and his Littermates will, while attempting to master the elusive English language, also attempt to master the intricacies of Blog Tech 101.
While the admitted purpose of this blog is to provide a handy source for good links, the secret purpose is purely narcisssitic - to get into print regardless of the value of what is said. Also of course to make the world a better place to live - natch.
Thanks to mad genius C.S. for setting this thing up.
