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.
Maybe she can pair up with the esteemed Dr. Howard Bauchner, our emeritus editor of JAMA who resigned the other day because something-racist-something-something was alleged to have happened somewhere, sometime during his watch, to the outrage of persons of all genders and colors besides white.
Maybe they can carpool together to their new job at Walgreens, downtown San Francisco, where they're the new Welcomers, holding the door for shoplifters to make sure they don't trip with that armful they're carrying out.
Why not? If they insist on being ridiculous, they can still make themselves useful.
To be Hispanic is to embrace the culture, language and institutions of Spain (and Portugal). Hispanic in the Western Hemisphere is to embrace this culture that was introduced by the Spanish (and Portuguese) colonizers. A feudal culture that introduced old-world masters to enslave the indigenous and introduced African populations, once they no longer enslaved common people from Europe.
It is not sad that she will resign. It is sad though that she will probably search out some government program for a handout, or apply for SSI somehow claiming to now be disabled. One way or another the tax-payer will continue to fund her.
