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.
That was cute, Ron. Too big for his mouth, but he wasn't giving up.
The elephant is cute, too. Glad it wasn't a panda. I might be the only person in the world who does not get the fascination with those fat things. You go to the zoo and stand around with a bazillion of your closest friends and watch on a TV screen as they sleep. Wow.
