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.
In that case, I must be at least a Goddess,2nd class, since I never cease speaking my thoughts....Do you think that Thank a Soldier thing is for real? After repelling the recent phishing mail that arrived yesterday,I am dubious about giving my email address to anyone. I mean, if I thought one were just writing a cheery, grateful message to one of our guys out there, I would. But what if it's a spammer in Pakistan?
