Panama is changing its law and is going to start charging 25% tax on new cars. This new tax will go into effect in July. If you are planning on buying a car, you might need to speed up your thinking process.
UPDATE: The Panama News posted the Spanish text for Martinelli’s tax reform. I assume buried within this document is the answer to the whether cars are going to have a tax of 25% or not. Being Spanish legalese, it is beyond my ability to understand it.
Panama does not change the clocks for daylight sayings. I am sure most Panamanians pay no attention to the change that much of the world recognizes.
I got up at the same time and it was this evening when I noticed the effect. My programs on CBS had all started an hour earlier.
The good news is that Letterman now starts at an hour I can watch.
While taking a routine vandalism report at an elementary school, I was interrupted by a little girl about 6 years old. Looking up and down at my uniform, she asked, “Are you a cop?”
“Yes,” I answered and continued writing the report. “My mother said if I ever needed help I should ask the police. Is that right?”
“Yes, that’s right,” I told her.
“Well, then,” she said as she extended her foot toward me, “would you please tie my shoe?”
