Steve, you are lucky to be such a sound sleeper. Sometimes, there are 3 trains per evening complying with Government regs during the wee small hours of the morning. There are so many absurdities that we tolerate from Big Brother. When is the last time that you purchased a smart phone? It was probably priced at about $200, the sales tax for which should be about $19. But the state Government wants to pretend that we spent $600, so they require us to pay about $60. If we had the Boston Tea Party (from the 1770's) people living today, as opposed to today's jibber-jabber Tea Partiers, the state capitol would have burned down many years ago. Collectively, we are wimps.

Seems like going somewhere then you state an obvious. The wimpy part isnt going to change anytime soon took decades to craft that.
