Imagine waking up this Christmas morning to discover the Grinch had slapped a tax on logging onto the Internet, sending an e-mail and visiting a Web site - or worse, redefined the entire Internet as just another telephone service that would subject Internet service to a combined tax burden in the neighborhood of 18 percent. Then imagine discovering that it wasn't actor Jim Carrey underneath that green face paint but Sens. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., or George Voinovich, R-Ohio, instead. Say it isn't so, guys!
