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.
These dolphins picked the wrong beach for a mass suicide attempt. Sea mammal schools do this sometimes. for mysterious reasons. Like Blackfish (Pilot Whales) on Cape Cod. In the old days before McDonald's, such events were a windfall of oil and meat.
I can remember some rotting Blackfish carcasses on Cape Cod. Now, they drag them out to deep water again, but they just end up doing the same thing somewhere else.
