Hard-Hitting Tax Day Coverage

Kudos to the local TV station for positioning a reporter outside the 4th Street post office on April 15. What a strategic place to pin down the people of Bend and ask some hard-hitting questions about taxes! I approached the reporter to offer my view: Paying taxes sucks when nearly 50% goes to military spending and not even 5% goes to education and social services.
Unfortunately, my notions were a bit outside the scope of the reporter's story - he informed me that he was there to monitor how long the average person had to wait in line to mail their taxes.

Wow, hard-hitting indeed. Thanks, local TV guys, for doing your part to ensure an informed citizenry. Very ... yawn ... informative.
