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.
Hope our readers are enjoying this weekend. I am going for a ride over hill and dale and field and fountain with the Mrs. in an England-like cool foggy drizzle in a moment, but Jack, our Quarter Horse, looks a little lame this morning - maybe it's a sore hoof - and I'm not sure which animal I want to mess with today.
But I wanted to make sure to post this link to a discussion about Special Ed and "special needs" kids. I have a number of friends and acquaintances who are dealing with PDD and autism and the like in their kids and grandkids.
