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.
How advanced and sophisticated they are over there in Providence. Surely a beacon of reason and hope in a wayward world. An applicant tells me their application form has a part that says:
Male Female Other
I must admit I am intrigued by the "Other" category, but in a way that I do not respect in myself, a sort of morbid curiosity, I suppose. The thing that brings people to side shows. At least it doesn't ask "Gender Preference." Heck, who wouldn't want to be a guy? It's not so bad to be one. Or am I hopelessly outdated?
