It’s all in the name of research on finding a better way to tax motorists, and the pay is $895.

Wanted: 250 Maine drivers willing to let a stranger put a black box under their dashboard.

The reward: $895 and the opportunity to speak their minds about the highway tax experiment to a researcher.

University of Iowa researchers are seeking 250 motorists in Cumberland, York and Sagadahoc counties willing to have a computer tracking system installed in their cars for 10 months. The system could someday be used to tax drivers according to the number of miles they drive, rather than the amount of gasoline they consume.

Portland is one of six cities picked for the research, which is designed to determine whether a mileage tax would work better than the gas tax to support the country’s highway system.

The numbers that originally grabbed my attention were from MJ’s will. He signed it on 7/7/2002 (7722). The Jackson Family Trust — made up mostly, I believe of non-family members — is named in the will as the executor of his estate. It was created on 3/22/2002 (32222). MJ’s death was on 6/15, the 166th day of the year, with 199 days remaining). By rotating 166 we produce another 199; by inverting the numeric values of 199 we get 911.

The MSM has released a video clip from MJ’s last rehearsal. In it, MJ is performing They Don’t Care about Us, a song emblematic of his misgivings toward Jews. The original version, which he was forced to change by Jewish reaction, included the lyrics

“Jew me, sue me, everybody do me

Kick me, kike me, don’t you black or white me.”
