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.
Ah, higher education. Video at Volokh. A college applicant tour. My Dad always said that, when Dartmouth came down to Cambridge for sports, you were well advised to get your car off the street. A bunch of wild Indians up there.
I did my degree at one of the worst party schools in the nation, and as I pointed out at VC, there is a world of difference between students partying and thousands of drunk students rioting in the streets, turning over and burning cars, and assaulting one another.
