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.

Rule of thumb: half the top talent in the USA performing arts will at any given time be Canadians.
(still the funniest thing on the net --SCTV youtubes --funny that is until you stop laughing a moment and realize the enormous --oh what the hell, prodigious --raw talent of every single member of the troupe)
