Today, June 21st, is the longest day of the year. If Martin O'Malley was able to tax the sunlight just like he taxes the rain, then today would be the largest sun-tax revenue day of the year. There is approximately 14 hours and 54 minutes of sunlight in the Maryland area today.
I hope the unintended consequence of this blog post isn't that it gives Gov Marty the idea to do just that. But would there be a tax on cloudy or rainy days? I'm sure there's a bureaucrat in Annapolis already working on this.
It's all shorter days from here. Happy Summer!
