Popular on Forbes: Golfer Phil Mickelson may call it quits due to climbing tax rates

Word is, Phil Mickelson is mad as hell about rising tax rates, and he’s not going to take it anymore. What follows is a brief portion of an interview Mickelson gave earlier today after carding a final-round 66 at the Palmer Course at PGA West in La Quinta – which I assure you, is not associated with the La Quinta next door to your local Denny’s – in which the golfer hinted that he is considering drastic career changes because of a combined tax rate nearing “62, 63 percent:”

Strippers would wear license with their real name and number

http://www.star-telegram.com

Rep. Bill Zedler has filed a bill to require employees at sexually oriented businesses to get a license and display it while working. The conservative lawmaker said he hopes the measure, if it passes, might encourage women to find another line of work. "They won't want to get a license as a stripper from the state of Texas," Zedler said of his legislation. "I think it would keep a lot of girls from getting involved in that lifestyle and basically wrecking their lives. "This will force everyone to clean up their act," he said. "Overall, it will be a benefit to everyone concerned."
