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.
Good weekend day trip, if you are anywhere near Storm King. Always thought that was a killer name for a mountain. Those Hudson Highlands are surprising.
Zero to sixty in 4 seconds - on a battery. Alphapatriot. Cheap too.
Fisk - of all people - on Beirut. Many people are fond of Lebanon.
Cluck, cluck. Women in the UK may be able to sell their eggs. Tangled Web. Just like Brave New World. Can you get, brown, white, organic, large and medium?
Lamont: 2.8 million in 2005 income, 5000 in charity. Typical Dem - Let The Govt Do It. Just One Minute. Cannot include the Family Fund - I suspect that's a foundation with legally-required disbursement.

"Islamic Iran will not be deprived from its obvious nuclear right, even by a resolution by an useless U.N. Security Council," Ahmad Khatami told worshippers at Friday prayers in Tehran, broadcast live on state radio.
I remember walking to Storm King from Manhattan after finals. Left on a Friday afternoon, took the subway to the George Washington Bridge and hiked to just north of Lamont Doherty Observatory by evening. The following day hiked about 42 miles to the park. Hitchhiked back on Sunday. I was a bit younger in those days and a much faster walker.
