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.

Big snow coming to New England. Wonderful. What is fun is to watch the TV news hype a normal winter snow. "Winter weather warning" flashing below the screen, etc. I guess it sells soap, though. Weather was more fun here in New England when you didn't have two days' warning.
