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.
Did anyone notice the news flash about the Olympics? The Brits are setting up a Lido on the grounds of Buckingham Palace, a beachy place where gorgeous girls in tiny bikinis can play Olympic team volleyball. I suspect we know where wicked Prince Harry will be spending most of his time. I guess we know one area of the Games where they won't have any trouble getting security.
