"Given our current economic condition why should we have an ounce of sympathy for folks caught not paying their fair share or otherwise trying to cheat the system?"

Who is doing this? Not these business owners. Read it again and don't just assume this is about trying to avoid paying taxes.

Sometimes bitching up a storm doesn't help. I have a feeling this is going to make me very sad very soon. Should I go an prove that every restaurant, bar and nightclub makes me sweat? "opportunity to dance" tax. I know this sounds like a joke but I have a pretty strong feeling it is not.

I adore Lindy West and what she has added to the Stranger's writing pool. I adore Dan Savage and how he has shaped our community as editor of the Stranger.

I appreciate her post because I identified with it and that's a good thing. It made me smile. Job done. Also, it was a different point of view on the SLOG than I used to (and I read this darn thing every day). I intended to post originally that I appreciate Dan for his "stir the pot" posts to the slog on many topics, weight being one of them. Isn't that what he should be doing? Making us think and argue? But, as an important figure in our community, I adore him and I fear him. I fear that he will show up to a burlesque show I am in and write about it and how my body is not fun to watch (even if it was). I fear he will attend a roller derby bout and write about the girls and how their bodies and say nothing about the event or the sport. But I know these are just fears; they are my imagination. I know I am not that important or that Dan doesn't really dislike me or my art or my favorite sport. But somehow, over the years, I got the impression that I would rather have anyone BUT Dan comment on these things if they pertain to me or people I know. It may not be true but the impression I built over the years is that, should we ever meet, Dan would disregard me for my size. And it was nice to hear someone who works with him sorta felt the same way.
