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 Intelligence Squared debate on global warming in NYC last month. Pull up a chair, grab a beer, and give it a listen. These guys are scientists, not politicians. Michael Creighton is one of the debaters, and NPR's Brian Lehrer is the moderator. I suggest the longer, unedited audio version.
Unfortunately, it's not set up as a true debate - more like a series of brief talks, but the exchanges get better towards the end. Still, interesting - except for that Brenda, who has nothing to say.
