More Tea in the Harbor

We Massachusetts residents still resent taxes, after more than 200 years! The governor declared this past weekend a sales tax holiday and the merchants of the state managed to ring up more sales than they do for Christmas. Our sales tax is 5%, and the sales tax holiday didn't apply to really big ticket items. But people went crazy, and spent for the sheer joy of doing the state out of their 5% I guess it's that tea in the harbor all over again.
