Sanity Injection

Injecting a dose of sanity into your day’s news and current events.

Well, that explains it!

HealthDay News reports that “in 2007, researchers from Japan’s Kyoto University found that young chimpanzees actually out-performed human adults in tracking numbers and remembering sequencing.”

Maybe if we appointed a chimpanzee as the head of the IRS it would be able to understand the tax code.

Seriously, if somebody wants to use a paid tax preparer – even the head of the IRS – that is their business. But if you state publicly that you find the tax code so complex that you have to use a paid preparer, isn’t that tantamount to admitting you’re not knowledgeable enough to do your job? I file my own taxes – shouldn’t the IRS Commissioner be at least as smart as me?
