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.
Perhaps that is what the NYT views as news. It has been a well-known fact for 20 years. Just one more non-profit org that was hijacked by the Lefties who didn't want to be tested by real jobs, years ago.
Someone from the ABA called me a month or two ago, trying to get me make a contribution or buy a membership or something. I explained that I was not a fan of the ABA's political positions. She was astonished -- the ABA has no political bent! What in the world was I talking about? The ABA is very balanced in its views! Tell me another, I said, and good luck EVER getting a penny out of me. I think she was honestly puzzled. I'm just amazed that the NYT was capable of noticing what's been obvious to everyone else for a long time.
