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.
Wasn't Fairfield County where Ned Lamont came from? Sorry, those from "upstate" don't view Fairfield as "supposedly savvy." Just more monied and arrogant.Fairfield County is just a suburb of Noo Yawk and a place where fans of the Evil Empire in the Bronx hang out. Westchester East. NNE: Not New England.
IMHO, Fairfield County's biggest contribution to civilization came from the tongue of longtime Bridgeport Mayor, the Socialist Jasper McLevy, who, when confronted by an angry constituent whose street hadn't been snowplowed, replied that as God had put the snow there, He should assume responsibility for getting rid of the snow. Not the City of Bridgeport.
