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.
Are you able to use your contact to inquire about the author of the Woodpile Report. It seems he has been silent for several weeks and many commenters on other sites are concerned about him. I thought maybe you might have a contact somewhere who verify if he has passed away, become ill, or just resting.
Tragic, Remus was a good read. Very eclectic. More of a prepper than I; hopefully not more correct than I, although it's looking more likely. I'll miss his posts.
On another note.
A young man, Leo, is rebuilding the Tally Ho, a 1910 Gaff Cutter, pretty much by himself. He's a master at finish carpentry level work, on a boat. He's got almost 80 episodes posted. IMHO, it's worth checking out.
