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.
The Scots seem to have more names for whiskey than Eskimos have for snow.
Yeah, yeah, I know, but according to the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis, the fact that inflections and modifiers before and after the word snow create the illusion of many words for snow still counts for something.
