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.
Oh, they DO want to know, Marianne, so they can feel superior to us unwashed types.
On Wisconsin Public Radio, they do have the superb Larry Miellor, who does not have much in the way of politics on his program, but the Joy Cardin show was 3 hours of hate every day during the Bush years.
