I lived there during the King Dome fiasco. We paid millions of dollars to "renovate" it after some ceiling tiles fell in. Then when the voters voted down the tax hike to pay for a new stadium the government rammed it up our asses anyway. I never understood how they could get away with something like that. Criminal, to say the least.

True. I think it cost the same to register my canoe as it did for my 28ft cruiser.

Hey Dan:

Are you still in Ohio?

You do know the accounting hall of fame is in Columbus - right?

There is no way a place could be so blessed as to have a shrine to the plumbers of the business world and be cursed.

Oh yeah - Hey Dan do you still live in Ohio?

Respectfully submitted,

dick CPA

That's no surprise.

In Ohio most children don't recognize their parents.
