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.
[b] Re: Apologies . . .[/b}Yesterday, the U of M cancelled the writing portion of the final exams required for graduation. In other words a student receiving an undergraduate degree is no longer required to demonstrate the ability to write in a logical, an coherent style. The fem/nazi in charge looked straight into the lens of the local tv camera and explained the cancellation of the writing requirement in this way:
'the old test was to determine if one person (the student) had acquired certain skills. This is opposite to what we are more concerned with, which is how well do we teach"
Gotta love it! That skill with lies and deceit upon which these women base their entire lives.
