Now my advice for those who die
Declare the pennies on your eyes
'Cause I'm the taxman
Yeah, I'm the taxman
And you're working for no one but me
--- The Beatles, "Taxman"
You know what I think when I see that title line, above? Walking really does tax the feet.
I did my taxes a few days back. Actually, I had H & R Block do it. It was a load off my mind, at the low, low cost of about 40% of my refund. Yeah, very expensive, but I wouldn't have been able to figure in all my school-related deductions without professional help.
Todd: Daddy, what do taxes pay for?
Ned: Oh, why, everything! Policemen, trees, sunshine... And let's not forget the folks who just don't feel like working, God bless 'em!
