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 hope for his sake the guy isn't as sappy as he looks. Schools could do humanity a great service by offering a course (for males especially) in facial appearance and facial expression. Sappy, hang dog faces seem to afflict young men more than young women. Something to do with the plethora of fatherless families nowadays?
