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 think Buddy Hackett was one of the best ever comedians of our times. I miss someone like him who really enjoyed his profession and entertaining people. Was "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World" the only comedy movie he was ever in? Going to check Wiki because I believe he had a role as a serious actor, too.
