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.
"Wait patiently for him..." In the words of the prophet Habakkuk, "How long, O Lord?" John Milton wrote, "They also serve who only stand and wait." Thanks for posting the Lectionary for those of us who continue to wait.
I'm waiting as that is the only thing I can do, but those old evil doers in DC seem to live on forever. As my mother used to have a sign in her work office that said " Grant me patience Lord, but make it quick".
