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.
Recall that song from one of my parent's albums- though it was a newer, faster version. A classmate of mine, who originated from Stratford CT, once claimed that someone in his family had known one of the Ink Spots growing up in CT. I never checked out that claim, but it turns out that one of Ink Spots was born in New Haven, not far from Stratford, so who knows.
