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.
That reminds me of when I was in boarding high school. Before one of our junior varsity soccer practice in the snow, we built a "Miss J. V. Soccer". In spite of the cold, she was not clothed and we managed to find some grass (used to add realism!). Calvin's was probably more artfully done, but I will always remember Miss J. V. Soccer. :-)
