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.

How "assortive mating" affects social mobility. People tend to mate with those of similar income/education. Stumbling. Maybe a govt regulation against this insidious practice?
The Long Tail. Am I the only one who hasn't read this book? A review
Ampakines sound like good stuff. They reverse memory loss. They reverse what?
