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.
To varying degrees and for varying and not well-understood reasons, these kids, even if quite bright, do not fit in well in most settings. Their behavior and demeanor make others uneasy. While many people do not fit in well, "spectrum" people have qualitatively different challenges. It's in their hard-wiring. Many or most would like to function as normally as possible, so programs like the above offer some hope.
