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.
Despite its being very much in the "public interest," the NYT still refuses to disclose Pinch Sulzberger's IQ, or the length of Bill Keller's johnson under conditions of journalistic arousal. However, these are secrets the public has a strong need to know, and it would not kill Americans to know these closely-held secrets.
