Having written a 3,700 word short story today, I proceed to work on my taxes, where I am terribly desolated to find that I am unable to claim Oregon's Fish Screening Devices credit. Sadly, I did not have the foresight to install any of those in the plumbing of Rancho Lake.

Subject: Taxes for Dummies

While working on my taxes, back in February, I found, on page 32 of IRS Publication 525, the .pdf version, this short and thought-provoking paragraph:

"Stolen property. If you steal property, you must report its fair market value in your income in the year you steal it unless in the same year, you return it to its rightful owner."

And to add insult to injury, this means all those fish will be able to phone you directly.
