Food Tax Errors or Learning to Love Crow

My previous post: Food Tax redux or Fiscal Dieting 101 used the wrong data. I mistakenly picked up the Land Transfer Tax numbers instead of the Prepared Foods Tax receipts.   In fact Prepared Foods tax receipts have fluctuated within a 10% range of the last three years and rose a total of 15% the 2 years prior to that.
I guess folks are still eating out about as much as they were.
I am sorry for any trouble my  mistakes may have caused anyone.
Thanks to Ray at EOD and Sandy at the Outer Banks Sentinel for questioning my numbers.

BTW:  Anybody know a place that serves black birds - preferably fried crow?

Not sure about black birds, but the fried chicken at Kill Devil Grill on Friday is super tasty. (Not that either of our M.D.'s would approve of such).

Oh Well, It will take a while (awhile?) to get back into your game!

No worries Bob! At least you're not out there pitching beach nourishment and having to use those stats:

Alright, we've failed twice, so we're batting 1000! With that high of a number why would anyone object to going all in with everyone's money and all future taxes? Makes statistical sense! After all, our efforts so far have produced a 100% rate of some kind! So therefore only an idiot would think this isn't a great idea!

Yikes. You know that sick feeling you had when you first realized it? Welcome to my world 5 mornings a week! :)
