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.
I did my part. I released the entrapped carbon from at least 10 pounds of charcoal tonight grilling steaks, shrimp, and asparagus. The fragrant blue smoke from all those release molecules piquantly flavored the evening's dinner. All carefully watched while consuming Belgian ale purchased from Costco. Man I LOVE carbon offsets. Somebody traps the carbon and I process it for balance. Life is good.
