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 used to own a 1953 Morgan Plus-Four Flat Rad. Only car I've ever owned where I was actually scared driving it the first time I got in it. Acceleration was amazing, plus it had a non-synched transmission you had to double-clutch through. Definitely a car you had to learn to drive properly over time.
