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.
I've been a fan of many disciplines of motorsports since childhood. I have friends or at least have had dinner with hundreds of like minded people coving everything from motorcross and banger 1/4 mile dirt tracks to World Endurance and even F-1. There are three things on which they all agree:
If it makes noise and goes fast, it's cool.
If it scares mom, it's fun.
Those sidecar guys are nuts!
