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.

A normal female (if a blogger can be normal) happily straightens it out for you: the looniness of sexual harassment extremism. One quote from And Rightly So:
It seems to me that women who file these charges have an ISSUE with themselves; they have little self confidence and take that out on others. They use their “status” of being a woman to punish men. For being men. Men look. They like to be around us. They are social creatures too, who thrive on attention and conversation. If a man is paying attention to a woman she should take that as the ultimate compliment and accept it for what it is: Human nature. Not turn it into something unnatural and negative and phoney. Women should be proud of what and who they are, the power they do indeed have over men, instead of using it against them.
Quit or Stay?, from Orson Card:
Well, dumb-guy Bush and his team have been leading us in the best-run war in American history -- not a flawless war, but one with far fewer and less costly mistakes than the norm. (Dear Furious Letter Writers: Don't even bother arguing this point with me until you've studied the mistakes made in all our other wars so you have some kind of perspective.)

Boston has a long and proud history of corruption, once you get outside Chestnut Hill and Cambridge. But the Bulgar Brother's story is hard to believe. Wizbang has a nice summary, and link to the new book.
Not just a slick news/blog update, but the pictures are amazing. Cotillion.
