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.
Shocking! And who speaks for the innocent leaves? Would it not be better to simply remove the trees rather than see these poor leaves go through the shock of leaving their families, only to be stepped on and crushed to death by complete strangers? Given that NJ ran an article here just the other day proving that plants have feelings, too, only the truly insensitive would not take action after seeing this heart-rendering video.
Maggie's promise to its readers is that we'll bring you the latest valuable news.
