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.
The Brit coppers videotaped the hunt supporters from a distant window with telephoto lenses. What is this? A John Le Carre novel? Nice to know that there is no other crime in the UK. But I thought the UK was "tolerant" of different cultures? Except their own, I guess. So we have Gandhi-like civil disobedience. Bravo! Bulldog spirit!
