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.
yep they're laying down some good stand up alright. That 'small Texas town' oddly enuff now that y'all mention it, is Dripping Springs, a half-hour west of Austin, and nearest burg to yrs truly. Willie's place is about 20 minutes from where i sit this lovely morning. I'da smelt that party if them sonzabitches were upwind.

As I understand at that level of cycling most all of them use some illegal doping. What is really going on is the Tour De France is considered a "European race" and this upstart American had the nerve to win it not once but 7 times. So it's OK if the Italian tema cheats or the french or any European team but if an American does what they must to compete then he gets tossed to the wolves.
