All I know is what I read in the papers

 

The Journal Sentinel editorializes:

Citizens always complain that their taxes are too high. And they are.

That surprised me. My wife and I are citizens, have never complained that our taxes are too high. And they aren't.

So what's going on? I thought Paddy McIlheran wasn't writing editorials any more. Did I get that wrong?

This is the same editorial that says it's time to limit direct democracy by citizens, who have shown they can't be trusted and might vote for radical things like sick leave for workers, as Brewtown Gumshoe points out.

Oh, well, at least I read it for free. I'd be really upset if I paid for that drivel.
