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.
The Foley story. Can I say that this story seems overblown? The guy is an idiot and a sleaze with no self control, but how many people in Congress might that be said of? Clinton, Studds, Barney - none of those guys resigned. Maybe it is election season?
Are the megachurches the Walmarts of Christianity? Megachurches, minichurches, and medium- sized churches. What's the deal? Dan Burrell (h/t, News for Christians)
Dunkin Donuts and Applebees. These two fine businesses deserve our support. Michelle We do a free advt for DD weekly, but never tried an Applebees until breakfast there in Nashville a week ago - good biscuits and gravy and grits.
