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.
Is that a pistol in your pocket, or are you just glad to see the TSA agent? With all the fuss about the TSA groping everybody's "junk," I think it's about time the TSA gave a waiver to Moslems so they aren't offended. No waiver for nuns, though. You never know what those sneaky nuns might be up to.
