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.
"Museum visitors pass a scale model of a tank designed by Italian polymath Leonardo da Vinci. The tank, designed more than 500 years ago, would have been powered by men and horses. It is one of 31 scale models of his inventions currently on display at the Sofia City Art Gallery, Bulgaria."
