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 few human beings on planet earth more annoying than Deepak Chopra, the touchy-feely, New Age Guru whose fetid, gooey, and completely banal nostrums regarding health and healing have reached a new low in the history of civilized thought.
Thanks for the linkage and the traffic today.
If you're going to put me in your "blogroll of honour", I'd like to have my own category.
"Sepulchres/Crypts/Mausoleums" would work nicely.
If you're not adding any more categories, how about shoveling me into "Mostly Political".
And Miss Dominican Republic in the picture above? That's my mother ! ! ! What are the odds against us both randomly appearing in one post?
The Whited Sepulchre
Dude, your mom's hot. Or muy caliente or something...
Anyone who spells sepulcher as 'sepulchre' and knows what a 'whited sepulchre' is, as well as 'honour,' has to be either a word freak, like moi, or the denizen of a foreign country, like Great Britain or Canada or wonderful Australia/New Zealand.
Which is it, Sepulchre?
