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.
Just as a matter of record, the Dallas-Ft. Worth airport had 12 inches of snow last night. Been following the weather now for 30 years, since I got a greenhouse and started growing orchids, so I can say that this is most unusual. Both Dallas and Houston get occasional snow, but not that much, and not that lasting.
Okay, so when there's a heatwave next summer, global warming will be real? Come on, this sort of commentary is asinine. Global warming theory does not predict specific events or years. That goes for everyone, including those who ascribe this or that hurricane to global warming.
