may get a bit more pricey

It would seem those days of tax-free internet shopping are in jeopardy again. Senator Dick Durbin (Democrat, Illinois), the same Dick Durbin that wants to help us lower the tax burden for middle class families, is preparing legislation for adding sales tax to all internet purchases. While I'm not necessarily against the idea, it certainly will make buying things on line less appealing when we have to pay tax as well as shipping. Of course, if the price of gas keeps going up, extra sales tax may just be a drop in the bucket compared to the cost of driving to the nearest store... In any case, it's best to buy those special items now!

The village editorial note: This review from amazon on uranium ore is simply priceless gold:
"I purchased this product 4.47 Billion Years ago and when I opened it today, it was half empty."
