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.
Mediterranean Diet? Healthy for some, delicious for all. Science Daily
Gonzales says NYT being probed in leak case. About time. Remember what Nixon got in trouble for? Not the break-in - the cover-up.
The totally disgusting Coretta King funeral. Heard a bit of it on the Hannity radio show - too awful to listen too. And the in-your-face hatred and disrespect shown to Bush demonstrated an out-of-control hatred that should be beyond civilized people. Turning a funeral into a political stunt. Beneath normal human dignity, and shows no honor to the deceased's life, or to the corpse. But I guess it's a bully pulpit...for the desperate and shameless. Bush was as gracious as a man can be. Agree with him or not, there is a real person in there with a code of behavior.
Do the Dems have a future? Ex-Donk wonders, and doubts it. And Happy Blog Birthday Ex-Donk. We're the same age. And I am an ex-Donkey too. Lots of us are.
