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.
I was way out in front of this one. I've discussed with friends many times over the past several years about the need for all of these extravagant facilities particularly in the face of rapidly increasing tuition.
Many colleges stopped years ago being in the business of teaching higher learning to curious and capable students and instead about maximizing the revenue, i.e., business of getting as many kids as possible to pay the tuition.
