Tax Day

Another Tax Day is upon us. Thank God for Turbo Tax. A great tool to be sure. But I have to wonder, what other magical solutions could those hard working people at Inuit have created to improve the business world had they not devoted the time and resources they have to making income tax so much less burdensome. It's a shame that so many brilliant minds have to be used to make comprehensible a public revenue system that need not be incomprehensible in the first place.

Oh, if only our politicians were led to act and implement policy based on honest principles of what's right and what really works, rather than on political expediency or survival. Why is it so hard for smart people to break free of institutional imperatives?
