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.
An old duffer is driving down the freeway, when his cell phone rings. Answering, he hears his wife's voice urgently warning him, "I just heard on the news that there's a car going the wrong way on the Interstate. Please be careful!"
"Heck," he says, "It's not just one car. It's hundreds of them!"
