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.

When I watch a TV show on the great cathedrals of Europe, I wonder how the workers felt, knowing that the cathedral wouldn't be finished for hundreds of years. I guess they concentrated on piece they were carving and didn't worry about the bigger picture. I get depressed thinking about all the lives spent on those monuments.
