Kerry Reconsiders

After a hurricane of public outrage, Massachusetts Senator John Kerry has decided that he will pay $450,000 in sales tax to the state of Massachusetts following the purchase of his $7 million Ted Fontaine-designed 76-ft sailing yacht Isabel. By keeping the boat in neighboring Rhode Island, it had not been subject to the tax.

What Senator Kerry cannot undo is the fact that he had a $7 million yacht built in New Zealand rather than New England. It’s a big deal to a lot of people in his neck of the woods.
