I'm wondering, though, what people expect states to do. They are losing sales tax revenues because of the internet. I know myself that now that Amazon charges NY sales tax, I tend to buy used books more, because the other sellers don't charge sales tax. But I also know NY is hurting for tax revenues, esp. with the collapse of Wall St., which is where most of the tax revenues were coming from. State stuff has to be paid for. What do people suggest? These weird machinations the states are coming up with are a response to a real need.
