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.
Here's another expensive cheap food. Arugula is actually a ditch weed more properly known as rocket--the use of the Italian name "Arugula" is a marketing gimmick. When Obama thought he was pulling a fast one on the local farming rubes in 2008 when he referenced the price of arugula at the market (as an inside joke to his sophisticated urban friends), he would have likely elicited this reaction had they known what he was talking about: "Who the f*** would eat that s***?"
