Re: “Senate wins tax break battle in final budget deal tally” (TNT, 6-29).

One of the exotic tax exemptions the Senate won was for “propane used in mint oil manufacture.”

Say what?

To make up for this absurd exemption, how about some of the taxes leveled by monarchs of yore, such as on men’s beards and the number of windows in houses?

On the other hand, I don’t want to give those folks in Olympia any ideas.
