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.
Thought Crime in England. This is bad. We are permitted bad thoughts legally, although the sin thing is another matter.
Broken penis. Ouch is right. Hey, girl - go easy on me. I am not a machine. Kevin, MD
Chavez, his new army (should help with his unemployment), and his delightful links with Iran. What a nice guy.
College newspaper editors fired for running Moslem cartoons. WTF? We'd do it in a second. Sometimes publishers need to be ill-mannered, if only to mark the right of freedom. Manners are good, but they aren't the law.
