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.
I've known, learned from, and respected the views of Fr Paul Mcnellis SJ for over four decades. Whenever he has something to say, he's worth listening to. If you are in the greater Boston area tomorrow, Fr Paul, an assistant professor of philosophy at Boston College, will be addressing an important subject tomorrow evening. Free and invaluable.
