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.
back in the mid seventies, when my big bhtroer and i were about to leave for college, my sister convinced Mom and Dad that we should have a dog. they caved and we came home from the shelter with Frisky . your Maggie looks so much like she did, they could have been littermates. we all still miss that dog.
