In the spirit of looking away, I'm doing my taxes this afternoon. It irks me that I have to spend a full day of my life each year filling out all these forms, even though my taxes are pretty much the same every year. I'd gladly pay more taxes in exchange for all those days back. This is the computer age, doggone it. All that data should go electronically to the IRS, and it should fill out the forms for you, and all you should have to do is check a box and say, "yeah, that's right." 10 seconds of your life every year, and that's it. How much of our nation's productivity is lost to this manual process that needn't be manual?
Meanwhile, Joe Blanton gets his third start of the season, facing Cliff Lee.
