Alas, I See Neither Julie Christie or Alan Bates*

So today I got my first paycheck at the new federal tax rates that are supposed to incentivize the economy. And I use the ugly word incentivize on purpose, as language should be mucky for stuff like this. I am making a whopping $66.71 more a month.

Today is also the day that the California state sales tax goes up 1%, which means in Santa Barbara County it's 8.775%.

I feel wonderful being the middleman in the federal to state fund transfer system.

*It will take you longer to get this allusion than it will to read this entry. Sorry.
