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.
Statistics-wise, I think this (Sunday, middle of August) is supposed to be the deadest day of the year on the blogs so I'm not going to burn up any of my single links, just make a few suggestions.
Neal Boortz If you're into political blog sites, you really have to put this guy on your daily rounds. Stop by his site after 9 am when he quits blogging and goes on the air. He's unlike anybody else out there, and many of his predictions are dead-on balls accurate.
Linkiest This eclectic links site deserves a once-a-day stop.
Cracked I only mention this site in particular because there are a lot of wannabe parody and satire sites out there, but these guys remain the best.
Google News Directory This is a collection of news agencies around the world, sorted by directory. A good link to stash to the side.
