Springs 'on the cheap'

The post-truth world can be a pretty dispiriting place, but once in a while, there is a glimmer of hope. The interview with Jan Martin ("To be frank ..."

Frank assertions are a good start.

Taxophobes are ready with their rejoinder, "If you are willing to pay more, then feel free to write an extra check." That's a response right up there with, "If you don't like it here, leave."
