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.
Student violence in France continues. What is wrong with that country? And Confed. Yank quotes one of the students, re work: "You've got to do every single thing they ask you to do or you'll get sacked." Gee wiz, wow - that just ain't fair! These students are about as mature as the Moslem rioters were.
Department of Dumb Criminals: Man caught with Billion Dollar bills. What do you say at the mini-mart when you buy a 6-pack, a pack of Marlboros, a pack of condoms and two Snickers bars? "Sorry, it's the only cash I have on me - can you make change?"
Newspapers in error 20% of the time in medical articles. Be glad they aren't doctors.
