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.

More on the Lancet piece. This is our last on this - it isn't worth the ink. Morgan at YARGB noted this, about their numbers:
From June of 2005 to June of 2006, the survey recorded 30 deaths due to car bombs. Simply scaling that up to the size of the population of slightly over 27 million equates to about 64,000 deaths from car bombs during this period nationwide.

Our political system doesn't attract the best people -- who, I guess, go into business or whatever. That's good: A society where all the best people go into politics and government is a society in trouble. But I can't help feeling that maybe we've gone just a bit too far in the other direction.
