Kevin, I'm guessing you can relate with this?
Here's the goal - we need so many people viewing and editing the guide that my puny DSL line hosting the web site from my house croaks! So get your happy hour on, and get editing any mistakes/adding hot deals to the guide!

...$62.million contract that includes more than $15.million in guaranteed money during the first year of the deal...
Anyway, between this sort of legal but questionable tax exemption and the fact that Warren Buffet would pay less than 3% tax on his total earnings if BH paid a dividend (see Buffett slams dividend tax cut) while his secretary making 1/1000 as much money as him would still pay about 30%, it's annoying. I guess though, at least problems could be fixed by adding another clause in the tax code saying a person cannot benefit from a charity they donate too, and the dividend tax cut - well we'll just need a new president to solve that one...
Added note: wow, this article on Iraq's flat tax is hilarious - written around the peak of the Iraq hype, it's amazing how wrong he is. I can help laughing reading "It would be deliciously ironic if the Iraqi flat tax begins to attract business away from Europe’s welfare states and helps pressure these socialist nations to lower their tax rates. This might be a fringe benefit of Iraqi tax reform." ...companies from Europe are just flooding into Iraq now aren't they, business in Iraq is just soo wonderful with their tax system!
Currently, I feel our keyboard system is incredibly lame also here in the western world. I guess it gets the job done, but it really seems there should be a much better way to type - like why haven't we all learned to type the way the speed typists do that take notes in court? They can type 120+ words per minute no problem. Is it that hard to learn? I doubt it, but it's the damned lock-in effect - I learned to type Dvorak style and kept it up for about a year in undergrad, till I just said fuck it, because every time I went to a cluster or friends computer, I'd be screwed with Qwerty...
