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.
If things get any worse at the NYT, I might begin to feel sorry for them. It is said that newspapers, in general, have been in a secular downturn, but I have no doubt that, at least at the NYT, their knee-jerk lefty bias and propagandizing has cost them both respect and circulation.
