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.
ohh, I've read everything he's written. He is great! One I listened to on tape, "Into Thin Air". "Under the Banner of Heaven" was great, and "Into the Wild" a super story -and- study of the psychology of men and their relationships with their fathers. Krakauer is very thorough and knows how to tell a story without the superfluities of 'having' to tell a good story. He's a natural.
I'm reading my sixth Daniel Silva. ..about the Mossad. Love these books!
