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.
And DON'T do like my state legislator and wear a black polo shirt unbuttoned all the way with a dark gray suit to a legislative luncheon with one collar slightly turned up from the bottom. Hard to take the guy seriously about anything he said while watching him speak. But then, it's hard to take him seriously about anything he's such a general idiot.
I do love a man dressed in a properly appointed suit.
