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.
Michael Yon in Baquba. Since Jules is following the battles so closely, I will rely on his links. It is getting quite interesting. Hey Harry Reid - It ain't over yet.
I wish some wealthy person would donate Yon enough money for an assistant and a photographer. Yon does this work on his own, of course, and what is happening now looks like the big push of the entire Iraq story.
