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.

A passion for the most efficient, and comfortable ways of moving people from point A to point B in major population areas. I also appreciate fine airplanes. But, most of all I miss the ease of commuting.
BL: please, please tell me you are not one of those men that kept those "wife beater" undershirts around for all of these years!! But then again . . .that was quite a scene at the time!
