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 cut them a little slack because of the way suggestion works, but I don't cut them that much. It reminds me of the guy who spent his life savings trying to bring back the 'original' Coke (when 'New Coke' came out). In a taste test, he couldn't reliable say whether he was drinking 'New Coke', 'Old Coke', or Pepsi.
It just goes to their snootiness and arrogance!
Interestingly, the people who claim to be able to tell one wine vintage from another seem to be much better at it. At least for some. That's the story my mother told me about my uncle and how he correctly sent back a bottle of wine that was the wrong vintage (from taste, not from looking at the label).
