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.
This reminds me, for some reason, of a story about Richard "Racehorse" Haynes, a Houston litigator famous for his preference for idiot jurors. He once approved a juror without asking any question of him during voir dire. When asked to explain, he pointed to an answer on a written questionnaire: under "length of residence" the venireman had written "100 feet."
