Thursday Rouser

From the Fox television show "Glee". Sally and I loved it. The bad news is that there will not be another episode until the Fall.

Government in a Nutshell

The problem with government is that it typically rewards failure and punishes success.

From Wikipedia: "In July 2006, the IRS confirmed that it planned to cut the jobs of 157 of the agency’s 345 estate tax lawyers, plus 17 support personnel, by October 1, 2006. Kevin Brown, an IRS deputy commissioner, said that he had ordered the staff cuts because far fewer people were obliged to pay estate taxes than in the past. Estate tax lawyers are the most productive tax law enforcement personnel at the I.R.S., according to Brown. For each hour they work, they find an average of $2,200 of taxes that people owe the government." (emphasis added)

Here endeth the lesson.

My Latest Obsession

Is goo, "World of Goo" to be exact. It's nicely challenging, fun and physically sound. It's also divided up into tasty bite sized morsels so you can play during a work break.
