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.
A few points: First, no links from the NJ for a few days. Someone reminded me that Christmas is coming soon, so I should start to focus. Second, photo is Rockefeller Center, of course. I will be in NYC tomorrow through Christmas, I am happy to say, and out of the dark, pagan, socialist MA woods for a change. Third, we are still getting additions to the Family Holiday Game #1. Feel free to add some more equally lame offerings. Fourth, a Merry and Blessed Christmas from your very own, mostly-reliable, unpaid, and devoted News Junkie. I will pre-post a nice card for y'all to see tomorrow.
Top Ten Reasons American Women Suck. And Rightly So. You may not agree.

Why won't gun criminals get with the program and be a little more progressive?
If it were not a few days before Christmas, one of us would comment on this piece by Volokh: Adolf Hitler on Federalism. Good piece. I agree.
And if were not a few days..., one of us might be more likely to comment on this very interesting piece about Michael Gersen and the Republican party, highlighted at Flares from Darkness. Maybe someone will find the time to do so.
