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.
Thanks, Lawrence, for linking our Darwin and Religion piece, which was a response to your mini-essay. When we get linked by Insty or Powerline, we usually graciously thank them via email, but these are deeper waters in which to swim. Thanks to a good blog pal on our beloved upper West Side of Manhattan, where I spent many good years, long ago. Chasing girls and talking politics and drinking beer and listening to the music at the West End. "Hey, Jude." Flip side, "Revolution." Am I old? Naw, not yet. A touch of grey.
