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.
My Alma Mater, University of Rochester; sent an invitation to an alumni survey. I anticipated the usual questions about my family, my career and my pastimes, but no question 3 was about sexual orientation, and soon there was a question about my preferred personal pronoun. There was little else. Finally they link to the fund raising page. Don't they know how offensively irrelevant all this look-at-me, look-at-me stuff is. Needless to say no donation followed.
