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 think it might be right to ask "which black lives matter"? I'm thinking of the ex-police captain in St. Louis who was killed. Or the senior citizen who no longer has a place to buy groceries. Or the shop owner who was already living on fumes because of COVID and now has lost everything. Travesty is the word, not protest.
