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.
The Howie Carr Radio Show, local Boston talker on WRKO, 3-7 pm, also streams live at howiecarr.com.
He is an irascible, yet humorous journalist, from Maine, who has as a regular feature of his program, The Death Pool. It revolves around celebrity deaths. People call in and pick a celebrity or notable name in the news, who they consider likely to die soon. When a celebrity who was chosen during the last open Death Pool sheds their mortal coil, as was the case recently with Walter "One World Government" Cronkite, the "Pool" opens up again, all prior selections become null and void, and for one hour the show allows callers to queue up and try to get in on the next Death Pool.
