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.
Give Kristof some credit for at least asking himself questions.

The NY Times has been leaning left as long as I have known it existed. If their building were any taller it would have fallen over years ago. But in the last 20 years the Times appears to have been taken over by communists. Yes I know, sounds like conspiracy theory. OK I admit I don't know they were taken over by communists but I ask simply; if they had been what would be different???
