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.
We have had lots of new readers lately, which is very gratifying to us slaves chained to our keyboards in the sunless, dirt-floor basement of Maggie's Farm. A hearty welcome to our new visitors.
If you want to take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with what we do, click a few categories in the upper left. As you can see, we are motivated by curiosity, and we just follow our doggy noses.
Your Editor is away this week (no, not hunting this time. Northern Italy, to get a decent meal, and maybe catch Dylan in Bologna), but we'll try not to let the well run entirely dry by pre-posting some things. The Dylanologist may have some inspiration, but he is unpredictable. Back on Monday with jet lag, fresh photos and fresh blogging energy.
Bird Dog, Editor Dog in Chief
P.S. Also, whoever can identify or guess those tattoos on our Dr. Bliss, "The Psychoanalyst," wins a free one-year subscription to the blog. Will get to the responses when I get back.
