As obsessed as some people say I am with the Seattle Times editorial board, I'm not nearly as obsessed with them as they are obsessed with repealing the estate death:
The Seattle Times urges a “repeal” vote on the advisory vote on the state death tax and “maintain” votes on the four other tax advisory measures on the Nov. 5 ballot.
A) It's not a "death tax." It's an estate tax. The dead don't pay anything. And using that manufactured pejorative label just makes the editors sound silly. And B) Oh Jesus. It's a fucking advisory vote. It's meaningless. How totally fucking pathetic.
Not sure why Seattle Times publisher Frank Blethen is so obsessed with the estate tax. I mean, it's not like his estate is going to be worth anything.
