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.
October has been a very good month for new Maggie's readers. A fine harvest of new friends, whether you agree with us about things or not.
A hearty welcome to all of you in the US, Canada, the UK, Australia, and the rest of the world. We are pleased and honored to have you all as visitors.
Please sample some of our "recent essays" on the upper left column - we only post "thought pieces" there - not that we are really capable of orderly thought: we do our best, with limited time, limited IQ, not to mention our neanderthal lack of intellectual sophistication. We are simple country bumpkins, recently fallen off the turnip wagon, who aspire only to Common Sense - and a few other things.
And don't forget to send us around to all of your friends and enemies. They should not feel left out.
You already know you're one of my favorites. You're hit number 1 to 6 in the morning depending. I have to come back around sometimes in my loop because the coffee hasn't hit my brain yet. :-) But it's funny you have this topic come up now, because my favorite commenter at my home base blog , ATW, asked me tonight to name my daily list, ya'll were in the top five.
Most mornings, your second after Drudge.
I really think you guys are great. I get news, jokes, smart opinion, and fabulous pictures. You're all that and a bag of chips. Thank you.
