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.
Well, hell, if it weren't for the Great Rift Valley, we would not be here. And the Sahara, when it was a game park. Did you know Nevada was very wet once, with critters you wouldn't believe, big fellers, massive and mean, and proto humans too. Then the whole damn thing dried up.
