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.
Love, romance, sex... There is a kind of dance between a man and a woman that both parties enjoy. I have always suspected that men and woman enjoy sex for different reasons but they both enjoy sex, the relationship the dance of love and seduction. Alcohol has indeed played a part in this important human interaction since there has been alcohol. Not always of course, not for everyone of course but it is there just as the compliment and subtle touch and eye contact is part of the romance. But... Drinking to blackout levels?
