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.
Who is to blame for the London bombings? According to news reports, both London Mayor Ken Livingstone and radical Islamist Anjem Choudary agree: it's Britain's fault. The implied corollary in each case is that the bombings were a justified response to legitimate grievances (even if the method employed was a bit distasteful to the sensibilities of "Red Ken"). If both Britain's leaders and enemies are against her, who will stand for her?
