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.
RE: there is a hole in the ground in New York, where a couple of the world's tallest buildings used to be.
I am not a fan of the building that will replace the twin towers. To me it looks fractured and broken and IMO it will not be a good addition to the NYC skyline. I was really hoping for this plan to gain support but it never developed.
