I spent my entire day at the office today dealing with little tax things. As I was finishing the last of this mind-numbing work, a friend who moved here from Switzerland walked in. "You know the thing about American taxes?" she said. "Here, you pay all this money and the only think you get back are these wars. In Switzerland, you pay your taxes and you get all sorts of social services in return." And I tell you, Mr. Bush, her saying that made signing the last of the checks an even more painful exercise.
