Feeling a little pale...

Always looking for ways to protect us from ourselves, (and raise money) the government is looking to put a tax on Tanning Beds, citing skin cancer concerns.

Aside from the obvious racially discriminatory nature of the tax, I worry about the definite possibilty that just like in the Mark Twain story, The Prince and the Pauper, politicians may also decide to tax the sunshine, (or the windows that it shines through), considering that sunshine causes a lot more cancer than tanning beds cause.

For a long time it has been hard to name three things that the government doesn't tax or regulate.

It may soon become impossible.
