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.
You can either believethe officials, or you can believe that Cheney and the CIA are behind the UK bomb attacks. Right on cue, Red Ken jumps to defend Moslems. I don't mind his defending innocent Moslems, but he might mention defending his country first. Well, he would never do that.
Global warming claims melt under scrutiny. Sun-Times. Yes they do.
Photo: A view of Wellfleet Harbor, Cape Cod, right across from Harbor Freeze. There was a time when "Nothing happens on Cape Cod until July 4th." I happen to be fond of June on the Cape, but you can have some chilly, foggy days, and swimming in the ocean in June is not for weenies. You can tell how cold the ocean water is by how far a guy's testes recede. In June, they go up to your neck. By August, only about to your belly-button.
I want to stay in that $16,000.00 per night room in Moscow. And I want that $700 breakfast. I deserve it. I'm not sure why yet, but I'll come up with a deservement factor.
Could that NYT's article about small schools have had any more whining in it? Good grief. Something good happens, people are working very hard to fix things, and all some people can do is whine. Why would anyone want to work in the public sector is beyond me. Too many fools out there.
I agree. 'Zactly my thoughts. I knew that fulcrum stuff. I contested the red rose in my mind and Googled it. Got Robert Burns' poem, 'Whoa, my luuuv is liak a rid rid roaz...' Whut a wee slikeette mousie he eth.
Sean, you must be from NY state. I think they're the only state that has Regents exams. That's where I went to high school. I remember those tests.
