I definitely don’t want to be responsible for pulling anyone away from their taxes this weekend with a riveting and lengthy blog post. So this one will be short and non-riveting. The long-winded tax attorney is just gonna use bullet points today:
- Obama released his 2011 tax return. He paid $162,074 on income of $789,674 (20.5 percent rate). When Romney was asked to disclose his return too, he responded by saying he’s filing for an extension. See full story here.
- If you’re interested in free Tax Day noshing at Panda Express, Chevy’s, P.F. Chang’s, etc., you may benefit from a perusal of this story.
- The Giants shut out the Pirates 5-0 today in their first home game of the season. Matt Cain threw a one-hit complete game.
- Axl Rose declined Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction like a little baby. Part of his letter reads like his lawyer wrote it for him:
I strongly request that I not be inducted in absentia and please know that no one is authorized nor may anyone be permitted to accept any induction for me or speak on my behalf. Neither former members, label representatives nor the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame should imply whether directly, indirectly or by omission that I am included in any purported induction of “Guns N’ Roses.”
