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.
re Female Track Runner, Sidelined Due to Boys' Making the Girls' Team Ahead of Her, Plans to File Title IX Complaint
I will be very curious to see how this turns out. The plaintiff seems quite correct in her suit, and yet I am given to understand that trans men may push women out of their places in women's sports due to that very same Title IX.
As it currently stands it seems to be a bit of a Catch-22.
DC spies. It is likely that far more spies are outside of DC too. At every college. Nearby to every microwave and satellite transmission location. Around every military base. Probably more spies in Silicon Valley than in DC. New York City is overrun with spies. Many of them came here thanks to our generous and broken immigration system. And it goes beyond spying too. There are, according to unnamed sources in the intelligence community, quasi-military cells in most every state. Russia used to be the big man on the spy circuit but now it is the Chinese.
