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.
ABC and Betty Ford are pleased to announce Britney "Uncle Fester" Spears has been added to the cast of the hit TV series "The Rehab Family."
The show was in danger of being cancelled, but four or five understudies for each character have been signed to long-term, multi-year contracts; and reports are that many of them are breeding! This assures us of years of family entertainment to come!
Tune in, any time, any place, to any medium, and see a new episode 24/7.
Vey funny, but who are the others? Recognized M, L and B, but not anyone else.
Was it Freud wo said that humor is aggression re-channelled?
Without maudlin voyeurism, some sympathy for the addict, please. Those in recovery know that humor is a lifesaver, but those lucky enough not to be addicted need their empathy developed rather than their mockery.
So I love your collage, and all your pieces, but I hope your fellow editors will also see fit to run some links that will increase understanding of and sympathy for those in recovery. The individual addicts have their work cut out ti own up and get better.
The following report is really pathetic. Now our AHL hockey team wants to cash in off of Britney. After this report I might just root for the Manitoba Moose. Mooses? Meese? Moose'? sheesh.
-AHL club offers Britney a break from paparazzi - an invitation to Syracuse-

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (CP) - An American Hockey League team is offering pop star Britney Spears a break from the party scene and paparazzi madness in Hollywood - an all-expenses paid trip to snowy Syracuse.
And fans of the Syracuse Crunch are also getting a Britney offer: women who shave their head will get into Saturday's game against the visiting Manitoba Moose for free. Howard Dolgon, owner and president of the Crunch, said Tuesday he would be happy to fly Spears in, cover her hotel and meals and give her the best seats in the house at Crunch games.
The team said the invitation is an effort to "provide tranquillity" for the pop star's "turbulent lifestyle."
Spears has drawn criticism for her recent partying and sloppy behaviour and recent reports said she had briefly checked into rehab. Over the weekend, she decided to shave her head in full view of a horde of photographers.
"In addition to being 3,000 miles away from Hollywood, Syracuse is light years away from that pretentious environment," Dolgon said in a statement.
