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 thought that Pi day was this morning at 1:59 am local time?
Today's word of the day: "Fallout"
As in "Bank of Japan Injects Liquidity To Counter-Act Earthquake Fallout"
The press will love that word today, and in most cases the meaning will be ambiguous enough that without a detailed reading one would logically interpret that they mean radioactive particulate matter falling from the sky.
