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.
I used to tell my students to take transcripts by hand in order to focus attention. If I didn't do this, my mind would wander, and I would miss much of the lecture. When I was a student myself, taking transcripts helped increase my letter grade by one level, this in the era before grade inflation, which I never enjoyed.
The sexual/drug revolutions occurred in another country, too. But I did get the rest of the 60's nonsense, including the MLK scam.
