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.
Great stuff. And is there a better “fight scene” in all of movie history than at the gas station in “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World”? Yes, it is a mad world. But thanks to those geniuses who can make us laugh, it is a little bit easier to bear.
RIP, Arnold, Marvin, Jonathan.
