Mouse Tastes of Pork

I’m back in Darkest Somerset and slowly catching up with the email and the blogosphere. One thing that caught my eye was this post on Crooked Timber about a proposal to “promote” tourism to the US by imposing a tax of $25/head on all visitors to the US. Of course it isn’t really about promoting tourism – it is about providing subsidies to Disney and similar companies without having to tax US citizens. And as we visitors to the US have no say in US politics, there’s nothing much we can do about it except stop visiting.

    Thank you ;>.
