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.
We linked the article at Science Daily about how golf courses can, with a little effort, turn their vast open spaces into wildlife sanctuaries without damaging the golfing. Turns out 70% of a golf course isn't really walked on.
The idea is great because it is both modern and old-fashioned: golf evolved on the wild moors of Scotland in harmony with the native scenery, and not in a sterile environment like a glorified version of miniature golf.
