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.
The rebels seem to have won at Dartmouth. This bodes well for sanity in academia, since colleges take their cues from the Ivies just as the MSM take their cues from the NYT. Watch for petition candidates with websites and blogs to storm the barricades at other universities. Ain't it amazing what can happen when people have a real choice?
