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.

Here come the polygamists.Althouse.Fine, says I...as long as each one doesn't get a copy of my American Express card. And they have to support their own kids, etc. "Yo, little wifies! It's Party Time! Hand over your work checks, and let's rock!"

Is diversity above the law? Daily Pundit. And a quote on the subject, which I know from experience to be true, from Stuart Taylor via piece at Betsy:
The notion that racial preferences help the disadvantaged is a sham. Most go to children of powerful politicians, civil-rights activists, and other relatively well-off blacks and Hispanics. This does nothing for the people most in need of help, who lack the minimal qualifications to get into the game.
Beyond that, racial preferences actually harm disadvantaged minorities and many others. They allow black "leaders" and white liberals to ignore black America's most dire problems -- fatherless families, bad schools, a dying work ethic -- while they preen as virtuous for favoring "the son of a black doctor at the expense of a poor [Asian or white] student whose parents didn't go to college," in Gratz's words.
