Proof that America Has Gone Crazy

Just in case you were wondering.

Monty Kerr of Austin, Texas paid $1,350 for a corn flake allegedly shaped like the state of Illinois. The eBay auction was technically for a coupon reedemable for the corn flake, because eBay has a policy against auctioning food items.

Kerr wants to add the corn flake to his "traveling museum," the title of which is presumably the "Hall of Folly" or "You Won't Believe What I Paid for This," or some such endearing name, where people can gaze at it and think, "wow, it looks like exactly like every other corn flake," and "it's not even really shaped that much like Illinois," or "what kind of dope would pay $1,000 for this?"

I know there is no end to the folly of mankind, but I was surprised enough to learn that Governor Spitzer was paying $4,000 for a couple of hours of sex. Compared with Mr. Kerr, Spitzer seems like a smart shopper.

If your right about all of your income tax law, how would you explain Tom Cryer? And why is the tax code so confusing? Shouldnt the average person be able to understand it? After all, it is their money thats being taken by force.
