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.
Some folks from academia are not too happy with me. They have identified me from another post, and if they proceed as they have in the past, I can expect the dirty tricks to begin. If there is some way to post to a blog site without being identified, please tell me. Otherwise I guess I'll just have to go eat an apple pie. ;-)
