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.
Score a large one for McCain. Motorcyclists vote, and they vote for the candidate they choose. Old people vote, as McCain well knows. Young folks ... well, maybe not so much, at least not if there's a party scheduled. Or a really great concert.
I realize that it's not politically correct for me to point this out. Tough.
