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.
""Of making many books," the Bible warns, "there is no end." Tell that to David Norton.Mr. Norton knows a thing or two about that, too. This quiet-spoken scholar has spent the past 10 years producing the New Cambridge Paragraph Bible (Cambridge University Press, 2005), the first entirely re-edited edition of the King James Bible since 1873.The Berkeley professor's next translation will probably be of the Bible's most comprehensive work of poetry, the Book of Psalms."The Chronicle: 6/17/2005: For Bible Editors, No Day of Rest
