Staring into the Darkness

The state of Tennessee has a huge sales tax rate (but no income tax). Occasionally, there is a sales tax holiday when the sales tax is waved on certain items (pdf). The timing of these weekends coincides with the beginning school. The theory is that people can get a break when buy school supplies (I'll let you draw you own conclusions about this one…).

I underestimated the throng of people that would be entinced to shop by the tax holiday. <shudder> I just need to buy some deodorant. It was horrible out there…
