Pay no attention to butterfly exhibits, riparian buffer-scapes, Randy Parton Theatres, teapot museums, beer company perks, remediation of salon graywater, and all that jazz because in politics money is not fungible. You guessed it. The new tax will go toward the chi-i-i-i-i-i-ldren and edumacation.
