Isn't all the hoopla over the AIG bonuses kind of like watching the Jerry Springer show? Who's going to throw the first chair?
I'm upset about it as much as the next taxpayer, but you've got to admit it's a bit of a distraction from the whole wasteland world economy thing we've got going on now. And now we're going to tax them 90%, leaving the rest for the state and local governments to gnaw on.
Anyway, note to anyone trying to hold onto their income ... we don't have state income taxes here in Austin! (Now property taxes, on the other hand...)
