Tax Bills Coming This Week...Maybe
Such a pity we no longer have the stocks in front of Town Hall, as our ancestors once did. Our so-called Tax Collector would undoubtedly have been forced to spend a day in them for every day the tax bills are late--call it two weeks or so. Passers-by would have pelted him with rotten eggs and moldering vegetables. After this salutary lesson, our appropriately-chastised non-Tax Collector would undoubtedly have done a better job in the future.
Bring back the stocks!
