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.
Looks like it. Love it. Santa loves it, too, and we love Santa - so we give thanks for Globalistical Cooling.
We hate hot weather (well, some of us do, but our authorship has expanded well beyond chilly Yankeeland over the years). Warmth makes me feel lazy and unproductive, and that is not the Yankee Way Of Life.
