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.
The review of the book by Andrew O'Heir at Salon is a prettty good one, and the book looks to be very interesting. One interesting thing, the review generated over 150 comments from readers though it's closed now, and they range from "amazingly lame" to "pretty darn informative and enlightening".
