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.

Running out of suicide bombers: In Iraq, they are using the mentally ill, and tricking their own people into becoming involuntary suicide bombers - they ask them to transport some bombs from A to B, then remote-detonate them. Surprise! And then comes the really big surprise: There was a slight error in transcription. Instead of 70 virgins in Paradise, you get one 70 year-old virgin. Dang!
