From NPR: Economists share their tax dreams, all of which would destroy any politician’s chance of being elected: no mortgage-interest deduction, no employee health benefits deduction and no corporate tax.
The Clarksville, Tenn., Mayor’s Fitness Council joins Austin Peay State University’s second Walk to Afghanistan Project to honor deployed soldiers. Participants in the October 22 event, which include families of the 101st Combat Aviation Brigade, are encouraged to walk the distance from Clarksville to Afghanistan. That’s roughly 10,644 miles. Project organizers will hold other Walk to Afghanistan events during the coming months but suggest participants to schedule their own impromptu walking events. Participants can sign in for the October walk at the Governor’s stadium from 4:30 p.m.
