Today, Chris Is Not Around [UPDATED!]

Posted: September 25, 2009 in Threat Quality

I have to go into the city to protest the state’s proposed 8% arts tax.  This is a tax on ticket sales that, weirdly enough, leaves things like “sporting events” exempted.  It’s basically just theaters and museums.  I don’t know what genius thought it would be a good idea to tax ONLY the institutions that must, by law, not have any profits…but I mean to make him aware of my displeasure.

Holland may or may not hold down the fort today.  I…kind of didn’t tell him I wouldn’t be around.  Until now!  This very moment!  Good luck, Holland!

UPDATE:  Where the hell are those Tea Party guys when we’re protesting an ACTUAL tax?

  1. V.I.P. Referee says:

    Good luck! Send a pack of mimes on them. No violence…just a slow and steady madness, delivered by way of art.

  2. V.I.P. Referee says:

    This is pretty absurd, by the way—they do realize arts programs are now suffering more than any others; are they trying to kill them-off completely? And raiding the buckets of non-profits is probably not the best way to keep the “peasants” from revolting. The Arts have kept people sane during depressions and wars.
