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.
Thanks to the librarian at Bird Dog’s local library he is able to send us brief messages from the only computer working in town. Also, thanks to the local librarian, the line is long to use the computer, as middle-aged men dawdle to ogle. So, here again are some links for your evening perusal.

There's something engrossing and terrifying about the child in the poster. I tend to believe all small children are vampires, but young girls especially. The sartorially smart, cherubic girls who tend to to inhabit adverts are surely sharpening their teeth to achieve hegemony over all domestic affairs, but the child in the poster...she has a unique quality about her. Even at so tender an age she shows the promise of reason. There is a glint in her eyes suggestive of a freedom from the normative...the vampiric. That I should find any kinship with a halfling is disconcerting and now I'm left believing my worldview is more frangible than I've ever been able to admit. We share a political perspective as well as a flair for expressive gestures. A halfling and I! The hope for our future shines from that child's eyes...I pray the President takes note and begins to see the world through them.
