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.
My God...what is that alien creature in the picture? That's obviously something from another star system. No human would ever find a freakish mutant like that attractive...right?
Photoshop some grey skin on that and you'd have something right out of "Communion".
(Actually, I say "photoshop" as though it hasn't already been done. In addition to taking photographs of extraterrestrials, the photographer apparently dropped his camera into a vat of Vaseline earlier that day.)
