Wanna get Montanans wound up? Start talking about taxes! Then immediately duck. We can get pretty fiercely wound up about them. Imagine how you would react if you found out you had to pay a tax on an altered bagel (not that kind of “altering”). In New York an altered bagel can mean sliced, toasted, buttered or smeared with cream cheese, just to give a few examples. It costs them an extra 8 cents for that.  I’ll take my plain thank you.
