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.

It's amazing how much you can get done while being 'unwell', flying around in your own 757 and living on 20+ acres in Miami Beach, and donating your Presidential paychecks one after the other. Also pretty amazing what you can claim credit for with respect to, say, unemployment or border control, while 'unwell' - compared to today, where the only thing larger-than-life is the inflation rate. I wonder if it's better to be 'unwell' and willing to spar daily with a confrontational and unfriendly press, than plagued with dementia and unable to answer simple questions coherently, even when the press is at your feet. Of course the press is always happy to wait for the 'clarifications' that follow from the diligent staff. Wouldn't want to rush-to-print with anything that isn't correct, now would we.
