The Marketplace Fairness Act would give states the ability to collect online sales taxes.
The Senate cleared the way this week for the passage of the Marketplace Fairness Act, which requires businesses with more than $1 million in Internet sales to pay sales taxes to the state where the buyer resides, Slate reported. While a 1992 Supreme Court decision allows for taxing online sales, states don’t collect online sales tax unless the buyer voluntarily sends it. In 2012, states collectively lost an estimated $23.3 billion in sales tax revenue due to online sales according to the National Conference of State Legislatures, Huffington Post reported. Michael Mazerov of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities says the Marketplace Fairness Act would make tax collections slightly more progressive, since poorer Americans are less …

One of the most unique Italian beef sandwiches around is the historical link in the 46-year history of Spiro's Deli at its two Glenview locations on Waukegan Road.
Pete Nestos is a peace-loving man, but his stock-in-trade is a Bomber. But it’s only vaguely explosive to the taste buds, though. And it’s not spicy. The concoction is delectable in contrast to what it was named for, via a big helping of Italian beef, French bread, Swiss cheese, pickle, onion and special home-made mayonnaise-based dressing.

The Bomber is Nestos’ best-selling sandwich at Spiro’s Deli, 1210 Waukegan Road, and is a tasty link to the 1966 origins of the shop a half-mile north at the northeast intersection of Waukegan and Lake Avenue. The Bomber and the Nestos family ownership of Spiro’s is one of the longest continuous business …
