Opinions: Death and taxes

There are bad days and there are bad days. April 15 is both ... and then some.

Historically speaking, we've seen nothing but miserable things on April 15:
In 1865, Honest Abe President Abraham Lincoln died. Since that fateful day, nobody has been honest again ever again.

In 1912, the RMS Titanic sunk in the Atlantic Ocean, with a human loss of 1,503 this is believed to include famous actor Leonardo DiCaprio.

Opinions: Humiliating people online is wrong, even for local governments

WALLACE: Avondale, a city about half an hour west of ASU's Tempe campus, now posts pictures online of people arrested for and suspected of shoplifting. This practice has been set up as a deterrent and is certainly an advancement well beyond Maricopa County's policy of posting mug shots of people convicted of DUI online as a punishment.

The suspected shoplifters in Avondale, whose faces have been slapped on the Web, haven't even been convicted of the crime for which they are being punished. They are suspects in the United States.
