procrastinators who have a midnight deadline to file their returns.

people who feel they are Taxed Enough Already -- TEA -- hence the
name Tax Day Tea Parties.

nation, more than 235 years after the original Boston Tea Party tax
Organizers say they're steamed at government spending since
President Barack Obama's administration took over.
They started yesterday when about 200 people gathered at the
Missouri state Capitol.
Rallies are planned today in many states, including Georgia,
South Carolina, Kentucky, Ohio, Maryland, Hawaii, Rhode Island and
In New Hampshire, state employees are hitting the street to
speak out against cuts aimed at public employee jobs.
