Gotta love this

Regular readers will be aware that tax reform is on the legislature's agenda in West Virginia. My main hope is that the newish Republican majority doesn't go Kansas by pushing irresponsible tax cuts for the wealthy and trashing schools and public investments.

Naturally, I was delighted when I saw this item from that state. Apparently Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback, who has slashed millions from education funding, went into a restaurant in Topeka. When he got the bill, in the place where the tip amount should go the waitress wrote "Tip the schools."

Apparently, the hashtag #TipTheSchools is catching on. Or trending, in the parlance of our times. I hope it goes viral.
