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.
Wait, do I get this right?
Four guys -- Simon, Andrew, James and John -- give up well-paying productive, meaningful jobs that feed people and themselves to become...um, wait...guys who produce nothing that will feed, clothe or house themselves or others. Kind of like today's guys who get Ph.D.s in the humanities. Hmmm.
