North Dakota will vote today on the issue of eliminating property taxes. The pro argument is obvious, and as for the con: "this solution is a little like giving a barber a razor-sharp butcher knife—and by the way, this barber is blind—and asking him or her to give you a haircut. You’ll get the job done, but you might be missing an ear or an eye.” [NYT via Gawker]
