More Upstate Bloggy Goodness

The ever-intrepid Buffalog Craig points us to a new upstate blog: Rome, NY Sucks. While I've never been there, and can't confirm or deny that allegation, I note that Rome is located in Oneida County. Oneida County has the dubious distinction of having the highest sales tax in the United States of America. 9.75%. If what Rome, NY Sucks says is true, then that 9.75% is that county's "thank you" to its intrepid citizens for sticking it out through the upstate stagnation/depression. Well, maybe not "thank". (FYI: Quebec has the highest sales tax in North America, AFAIK. It's about 20%, including GST & PST).
