I don't like higher taxes. The .5% sales tax bump is never ever going away. We didn't need it, the economy is growing and I'm always for cutting programs instead of increasing the largesse of government. But, I'm also upset with the Republicans who supported it, so I'm not much of a fan of most of the politicians.

But what really pissed me off about Mr. Warner was when he came up here and proposed this bump to our sales tax, and we voted it down. So he turns around and punishes us by closing DMV's in the area. Supposedly because we needed to save money, when the uproar got loud enough, mysteriously there was enough money to reopen a bunch of them.

Seeing a line snaking outside in 25 degree weather is pathetic, and it was all because he didn't get his way.

But he is though!

Ah the DMV thing. He did that to get the General Assembly off their butts and doing something. It worked! Most are now reopened.

Hi all

I'm nervous about tickets going on sale. Rumor is they're not coming to Atlanta first leg, and on the 3rd leg I'll likely be in Australia.....and I'm not sure where else I would see them in the US and if I can afford a plane ticket + ticket price......I don't know what to do!!

ok, well it doesn't appear anyone is around. I probably won't be around later b/c I'm meeting up with some fellow interferencers in the ATL at an Irish pub!

Catch you later!
