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.
Well, the linked story is about the empire of a local would-be tyrant self censoring to keep from offending the leaders of China. Odd for a man who imposed an overbearing surveillance state upon the city he dominate (even as he couldn't get the streets plowed) and went on to control his victims' salt intake, trans-fats and tried to control their soda serving size.
One wonders what Bloomberg news won't run for fear of, well, Bloomberg, The Littlest Tyrant.
