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.
Dr Joy, I was going to comment on your neoteny post the other day. I was so upset when you compared yourself on a bad day to being a chimpanzee. All I could think of was you looking like Travis. Damn, you have ruined all the carnal thoughts I have of you. I'll never be able to dream of you again, without thinking of that crazy ape. I think you said that on purpose to break my nasty habit. : )
Nice post on Dr Alice Flaherty, she writes and I dream. Well, I use to, but never going to be the same again.
