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's my New Orleans big brother, in Hazelhurst, Mississippi. Date: Dec. 30, 2005. Time: 8:45 AM. Rifle: Browning A-bolt with Leupold 3.5X10 scope. Caliber: 30.06. Bullet: Federal Premium with Nosler ballistic tip 165 grains. Shot: 125 yards from a ground blind. He would prefer to kill a terrorist, but a freezer-full of White-Tailed Deer will suffice. A good ol' boy. Nice buck.
