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.
According to my National Geographic book, Animals of North America, our friend the mountain goat is, zoologically, an antelope because it has solid horns. A goat has hollow horns, according to a definition I heard recently -- I think it was on Discovery Channel. The animal we call the antelope up here -- the pronghorn -- is really more like a deer than an antelope or a goat. It has hollow sheaths over horn nubs (the males do), but it sheds the sheaths. Say that three times quickly.
It's les than earth-shattering but I did a little more research. A goat has hollow horns and a beard. An antelope has solid horns that rise and turn back. A deer sheds its head-gear and normally only the males have headgear.
