Tax Day

Today is April 15, the traditional deadline for Americans to file their income tax returns. It's also Saturday, which has somehow earned us an extra two days to file.

Each year at this time the tax records of many elected officials are released. Some shocking figures were reported by Vice President Dick Cheney and his wife.

Total income reported: $8.8 million.
Charitable Donations: $6.4 million.
Taxes Paid: $2.6 million.
Refund Due: $1.9 million.

While that income is from several sources, and it's not my place to judge, I'll just say this: it sure does make public service an appealing venture.
