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.

Actually the end will indeed be 2012 - the last date on my calendar is Dec 31 2012, which proves it! Almost exactly like the Mayan calendar stone on which the myth is predicated!
The calendar was an object to impress, and "ended" in 2012 because even as large as it was, that is all that would fit both legibly and at the end of one "Cycle" - rather comparable to a century today. This has been the view of most in the field (not absolute, but supportable) for a couplr of decades.
