[Warning 100% non-military justice, non-law related post]
It occurs to me that this winter the Mid-Atlantic states can count on exactly two things, more snow and more taxes. Here’s my conundrum. Howard County, Maryland has the highest local tax in a state ranked 4th nationally in highest overall tax burden. If I can count on more taxes than why is it that I was stuck in my neighborhood for 3 days after this snowfall and had not seen a snow plow on my road? Ok, maybe it was the storm of the century here and 32 inches of snow is a lot no matter where you are from, so I’ll cut the hard working plowman some slack . . . so, at least I’m not on a mountain pass north of Kabul or the Chief of the Sri Lankan Army (warning, slightly military justice related).
