After my cardio workout in the basement this morning, I turned on the morning news for breakfast. Imagine my surprise when one of the teasers the newsman throws out before a commercial break was “A city is going to charge extra to take groceries home — find out which one next”.

I turned to my wife and said “What is this, California?”.

Turns out I was right. San Francisco is petitioning to become the first city to charge a tax on plastic grocery bags — 17 cents!!!

Check out an online story of it here — http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1326917/posts

It was events like this that drove me crazy in California. The encroachment of personal freedoms by liberal, taxing, socialist minded lemmings.

And it turns out…..we DID leave absurdity behind. Wheh! That was a close one.
