What I’ve Been Reading: April 26

Mormon flow chart for your soul? Check.

This is a little gross. Isn’t there a better way to deal with the geese than just killing them en masse?

I wish I could spend money. Er, had money to spend and felt comfortable spending it.

“Fair” is an incredibly subjective term when we speak in terms of taxes. In one way, a flat tax is fair because everyone pays the same percentage. But in another way, that same flat tax is unfair because it has a larger effect on the purchasing power of the poor than of the wealthy. Same goes for progressive tax schemes and just about any other tax scheme out there. One thing is for sure (I agree with the author of this piece on this point), raising taxes on those earning less than $20,000 would be insanely stupid. Especially given the greater efficacy of the EITC as compared to welfare programs.

There are pluralities in favor of gun rights and gay marriage in the United States. How much of an overlap do you think there is? (I’m in it, so don’t say “none”)

Don’t leave your iPad on a plane… also known as “slow news day”?
