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.
By the way ... Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal is showing impressive smarts and aggressive leadership. And without having to use a teleprompter too. Louisiana has not always been lucky in its governors [the wavering weakling Kathleen Blanco leaps to mind]. But they've got a 24-karat leader now. And boyohboy do they need him.
