"… WashPost ...": Here's the link to the Washington Post piece on the effects of the payroll tax increase.
"… Sound and Fury ...": From Macbeth Act 5, scene 5
To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Mullfoto of the Day
Sign just inside a store in Old Town Alexandria. Welcome! Enjoy!
