"You're Welcome!"

April 14th, 2014 at 07:18 am

I just wrote the check for our first estimated tax payment of 2014, and will walk it to the mailbox soon.

As always, after filling in all of the other required info on the memo line, I wrote in the words "You're Welcome!"

And now I am going to do what has become an annual tradition for me on Tax Day. (I know it's only the 14th but I'm off work today so this is my personal Tax Day.) I'm heading over to YouTube to listen to Aaron Copeland's "Fanfare for the Common Man."

Is there a public service you like and benefit from? Don't thank the politicians. It is WE THE PEOPLE, those of us who pay every single legally required penny of our taxes, who foot the bill for the services, infrastructure, etc. enjoyed in this far-from-perfect-but-really-pretty-good country.
