Bay Area Tax

Once upon a time not at all very long ago I lived in a posh area of South Orange County (CA) and would drive up to visit my family for Thanksgivings and the like. I would often mention to my family members that things like milk cost at least 20% more in Marin than where I lived yet the per capita income was actually higher where I lived and heck, dairy farms are right here. So what's up with that? I was met with blank stares and disbelief. Well, now the enterprising blogger at Burbed has done some research which bolsters my point. But after all, we're so special so it is only right that we should have to pay more for the basics.
