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.
I have the higher math skills of my mutt dogs, but my wife is a high school math teacher, so I passed the link to her. Not for her students so much, as for herself and her colleagues in the math department. I must say, however, that my old Catholic school nuns drilled arithmetic into us so well that I can work with elementary skills fairly well, it is when it turns abstract that I remember that I need to nap in the sunbeams.
