There are bizarre things all around us these days.
Taxes levied on the illegal, and it’s illegal not to pay them. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, Connecticut lawmakers are proud of their taxes that are levied on illegal substances like marijuana, heroin and cocaine. I am failing to comprehend their logic here. What drug dealer is going to high tail it in to pay his taxes on a business he isn’t supposed to be doing?
The New York Post lived up to its reputation yesterday with a jaw dropping headline (“Before they put Cheato Lay’s coffin in the grave, CHECK HE’S IN IT”) on the death of former Enron leader Kenneth Lay. Read more here. And also here. I won’t deign to comment on whether I agree or disagree, since we are all about food here.
Finally, one that comes from me. At least in part. A webcam in Madison Square Park tracking the line at a burger joint. Apparently it’s THE burger joint in NYC and people are willing to wait hours for eats from this place.
