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.
All of Montana is rattlesnake country. The sign is wonderful but very few jurisdictions would permit it. Could this be from private property somewhere?
BTW, the statement is correct. Rattlesnakes would rather avoid humans. They only hit a target our size when provoked -- by their own standards rather than by our standards.
Several years ago, our local Gazette had a headline, "Fisherman refuses aid for snakebite; funeral scheduled."
