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.
OK. We have the apologist for the Taliban at Yale. And Abdul Rahman on trial for his life for converting to Christianity.
No wonder even some reasonable folks are growing weary of helping these people. What do they call Christians and Jews? "Sub-human feces-eating pigs." I do not disagree with Bush's aspirations, but I wonder if these stone-age people deserve it.
If Rahman is executed, there will be hell to pay. And hey, Lux et Veritas in New Haven - I'd prefer seeing these two guys in the opposite positions.
