The $1.16 Lion Tamer Speaks

For those who might have forgotten poor Deborah Combs, an unemployed American citizen whose tax debt of $1.16 caused her to be arrested and held liable for up to $4,000 in fines and a possible prison term, great news! . Charges have been dropped. Fines, even the $200 penalty Sean Hannity offered to pay are also dropped. A favorite quote from Loveland, Ohio Mayor Brad Greenberg: "The Circus is leaving town; I will not allow our taxpayers to spend any further money prosecuting this case." Bold words, Mayor G, but I wonder, if you're the Mayor, who's training the lions? And does that training include -- gasp! -- an apology?
