Tax time, videos, Dixar, and Hawkeyes

+ I was familiar with the Flat Tax, but the FairTax is a new one on me:

The FairTax Plan is a nonpartisan national grassroots campaign to replace the federal income tax system with a progressive national retail sales tax. It provides a "prebate" to ensure no American pays federal taxes on spending up to the poverty level, dollar-for-dollar federal revenue replacement and, through companion legislation, repeal of the 16th Amendment.

They claim bipartisan support. I didn't see endorsements on their site. I'd be interested to see some...

What do you think?

+ Jaq links two dancing videos, Singin' in the Rain and The Time Warp. I wonder what other good, classic dance videos are on YouTube. You know, like Dirty Dancing ;-)

But seriously, I think I'll show Singin' in the Rain to Bethy. And maybe look up Torvill and Dean . We'll pass on Rocky Horror for now ;-)

+ Dan links a video mashup of freedom speeches. King, Reagan, Kennedy, Kennedy, Malcolm X (Goldwater?). Check it out.

+ Month-old NYT article on Lasseter's reign at Disney. (via kottke)

+ I'm optimistic about the new Iowa coach, Todd Lickliter . Looks like they went after Bruce Pearl first.
