...and all that. Just plopped in, invited by a member who saw me elsewhere in the ethersphere. Female, lives in beautiful Santa Fe, NM. Politically fierce liberal with socialist leanings (yes, 'Live & Let Live" - right up until you try to use it against me), aetheist/humanitarian/paradigm pirate....will that do for a start...? I might mention: I don't waste time with posters who just bait, scream or attack. Don't bother. Passion is good, conviction is excellent, stupidity is tolerated, willful ignorance is not. Having said all that...hi everyone.
