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.
I see... So I'll have to satiate my epicurean fantasies vicariously this evening by imagining you dining on this feast. I'll do this as I eat boiled hotdogs and smashed potatoes with canned baked beans in front of the TV. In keeping with the spirit of your gustatory, black-tie event, I'll wear pants (until dessert).
