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.
A home with some Salem witch trials history is up for sale
If you want a really cool house for trick or treating this Halloween, you probably can't beat this one: the 1638 house of John Proctor, who was falsely accused and subsequently hanged during the Salem witch trials for witchcraft.
Listed at $600,000, this six-bedroom, two-bathroom house in present-day Peabody, Mass., has many historic features intact, according to real estate agent Joseph Cipoletta of J Barrett & Company.
