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.
My favorite story about how unbiased the press is when Tom Brokaw was on Imus in the Morning during the Clinton-Chinese Funny Money non-scandal. The conversation went something like this:
Brokaw & Imus are talking about the election between Clinton and Dole.
Brokaw: It will be really interesting to see if the stories of the Chinese helping to fund Clinton's election campaign will affect the campaign.
Imus: If people watched your show, how would they know about them?
