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.

I remember a similar sky waiting on bus while at pier 12 on the Norfolk Naval station (1970's). That wind would blow that cold humidity down the Chesapeake bay and slice through the warmest peacoat with abandon. Winter is NOT my favorite time of year......
