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.
Fluffernutter under attack in MA. This is worse than the Brits attacking ice cream. Millions of hearty and rugged Yankees, including my family, have been raised on this (disgusting) New England concoction. And Rightly So. My opinion: They can ban fluffernutters when they ban alcohol to politicians. OK?
The International Seed Vault. This is my idea of worthwhile international cooperation: making sure that we have seeds from every plant. Wonderful. Marginal Rev. found it.
