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.
You went to Princeton? So what. There are a lot of smart people out there in the big world, most of whom did not go to Princeton ...or Harvard...or Berkeley. Now if you had said that you went to Ecole Normale Superieure in Paris, then I would have been impressed because the graduates of ENS that I know are damn sharp.
