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.
Sex, violence, mystery, Judge Crater, and suspense...and coming of age in a classic 1950s Jewish Catskill resort which is very humorously depicted. A medical school pal has written an absorbing novel - God bless him. Especially because he doesn't write like a shrink, which he is, and a darn shrewd one.
Favorite quote: "The good things in life you have to seek out and reach for; the shit will always find you." That pretty much sets the stage for the plot - as it does for life.
