Lazy Linking, 78th in an Occasional Series
What I liked lately on the Internets:
78.1. Megan McArdle on Romney's tax returns: (1) he earns a lot of money, (2) he gives a lot away, and (3) he actually paid more in taxes than he needed to (because he deducted only $2.25M out of his $4M in charitable giving).
78.2. "I’ve long maintained that Republican legislators do not hate high taxes, they only hate having to vote for high taxes." Could it be that an Obama re-election, with the R's retaining Congress, is the only one way to really do deficit reduction right?
78.3. Ta-Nehisi Coates has no time for games because his work has taken up both his time and his creative energy.
78.4. The difference in tax burden between Philly and its suburbs is narrowing.
78.5. Worlds collide: the guys that run the coffee shop across the street from my house are now going to run the coffee shop across the street from my work.
