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.
Two weeks after breast cancer surgery, two days ago my pal lands this 140# Tarpon. Captain Juan Garcia of Indian Key, Fla. helps hoist the big guy on deck. Would make a lovely addition to the den, but they let him go...the right thing to do. If you got hooked by temptation, wouldn't you want God to set you free?
