HAPPY TAX DAY!
Look at it this way: The only other sure bet in your life is that some day you'll be dead.
UPDATE: Correction - Happy Patriots' Day! Paul Begala says anyone not happy today is nothing but a knuckle-dragging dupe of Rupert Murdoch, Paris Hilton and - wait for it - the Idle Rich.
Put it that way, you should be enjoying Uncle's tender embraces today. If you can't manage that, I suppose you can always just close your eyes and think of your Country.
UPDATE DEUX: I've been seeing headlines this afternoon about a proposal announced today to "greatly simplify" the tax code.
Reminds me of a joke "simplified" tax form I was shown waaaaay back in about 1978 or so. It only had two line:
1. How much did you make last year?
2. Send it in.
