YES! That is me screaming again. I hear you too; you also must have gotten your Cook County real estate tax bill in the mail. How are you doing? My tax bill has far more than doubled in less than ten years. With the recession here, and pennies-in-the-purse looking more valuable by the day, I'm proud to say I'm not choosing between any candidates in the upcoming election who say there is no road other than higher taxes.
Well, I'm off to a bracing cup of tea. Perhaps it will take my mind off the fact that, coming from a family that has been middle class since they dreamed up the classification, I might be the first to slide down the slippery slope to poverty.
