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.
Andrew Hoffman is a congregant at my synagogue.Andrew Hoffman is a finalist in Major League Baseball and People magazine’s 2010 “All-Stars Among Us” national campaign, in conjunction with the MLB All-Star Game. The campaign is to recognize individuals who are serving their communities in extraordinary ways.
Andrew Hoffman works at the San Diego JFS Hand Up Youth Food Pantry, which distributes food to families in need. Two Sundays each month Hoffman leads teens to distribute food and hygiene items to hundreds of needy military families in San Diego.
Andrew Hoffman is an everyday hero, helping to create a family-friendly environment for our courageous military heroes and their families. As one military mom said, "This distribution is a blessing. Last week I had to choose between diapers and groceries. Now I don't have to."
Andrew Hoffman deserves your support.

A young lady of my acquaintance does something similar in our community. She just graduated from high school and is on her way to the Air Force Academy this fall. It always brightens my day to learn of such young people.
