Tax Man

It’s official: Belgian customs hate my guts. Having purchased a couple of books from Amazon, I once again have to pay up — 13.42 € this time, which is about half the price of my purchase. The kicker: some 8 € were charged for “administration costs”. Catch 22 anyone? Perhaps next time I should order at amazon UK. Oh, and yes: the Doctor is a big Groucho Marx fan! ;)

Vote. Early. Often.

Making the switch: stories from people who voted Bush in 2000 and will vote Kerry next Tuesday. Bush, Kerry and brand association. So far 125 US newspapers officially endorse Kerry, including at least 35 that had endorsed Bush in 2000. The New Yorker makes its first political endorsement in 80 years – pro Kerry. Who will you vote for? The Brits for one, are willing to fill you in. (And remember, when in Florida…)
