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.

Chicago doesn't want Christmas linked with the nativity. Are they insane? Wizbang. Hey, Chicago! Christmas is a celebration of Christ's birth, and the annual reminder of the possibility for Christ to be reborn, in each of our hearts, to make us fully human. What planet do they live on, out there? It's not even Advent yet, and the baby Jesus is scaring the bejesus out of them. If the baby is scary, how about the adult?
