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.
Where do all of these spineless candy-ass university administrators come from? Are they as immature and babyish as the students, or are they just afraid of the Stalinist Thought Police? This is refreshing:
When I was an undergrad in the 1960s there were quite a few university student riots. The university administration would always talk a good game and then cave. We joked that there was nothing more hypocritical, craven and cowardly than a college president. Nothing has changed in 50 years.
