Out of the Blue

I dropped by the bank and the post office yesterday to complete the filing of our income taxes, and experienced no lines or waits at either stop, which seemed odd. I also found someone's lost checkbook at the bank, and had to remind someone at the post office he was forgetting his wallet, so even without the crowds, the tax-day pressure was obviously getting to some people.

Really? So I guess the Federal Income Tax Act - which has been around since the Civil War - and the Sixteenth Amendment are just for laughs? Remember that guy that drove his plane into the IRS building a little while back? He didn't think he had to pay tax either. Try it and see what happens. You can tell everyone in prison how they don't have to pay taxes too.
