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.
At MIT it is difficult to determine how many it takes to screw in a light bulb. First there is a peer reviewed study on whether to use an exact replacement or invent a better bulb based on overall energy consumption, environmental effects and whether a different spectrum might improve academic performance. Actually they have never replaced a light bulb there. They hire union janitors and it costs an estimated $173.27 to replace each bulb.
As an old-fashioned southern lady with an unmentionably mixed ethnic background [no, sir--just the opposite of what y'all Yankees have accused us of in text books ;) but I am mighty proud of it, no matter what Daddy says], i think y'all have discriminated against poor little ole Clemson. The Tiger is going to get y'all as soon as we figure out what a light bulb is, any ole way, and forever more why it should ever need changing. Won't somebody's mama do that for them and serve pecan pie and iced tea afterward on an orange paw-print tray?
