The major Sacramento newspaper has published a story about CTA's proposal to raise the state sales tax by 1 percentage point (about a 14% sales tax increase). One thing I applaud this newspaper for is allowing comments at the end of their news articles, and I've mentioned such on this blog many times.
So go read the story if you like, but more important, read the comments afterward. Click to display comments "oldest first", then scroll down to the "debate" between one darren65 (guess who!) and "tiredofsocialists". Especially enjoyable was his questioning of my credentials when I challenged a clearly incorrect statement he made.
