For Maryland consumers, tomorrow's 20 percent sales tax increase will mean a pinch in the wallet. For mini-market owner Sam Hamideh, the first sales tax increase since 1977 has been rather more afflictive. "It's a pain," growled the owner of University Market and Deli in Charles Village, who must reprogram his electronic cash registers to calculate the tax increase from 5 percent to 6 percent. "I called my guy, and he already has 20 people before me. ... I cannot program those things." Across the state, hundreds, perhaps thousands, of small businesses with commercial-grade registers have been flooding specialists with requests to rejigger the checkout machines.

My first foray into Christmas shopping this year couldn't have started on a more promising note. It wasn't at just any shopping center; I was at the Mall of America in suburban Minneapolis, only the Everest of its ilk, the largest collection in the country of stores and amusements. It was a couple of days before Thanksgiving, so I didn't even have Black Friday-addled crowds to fight. As a sales clerk at Club Monaco told me, "It's the calm before the storm. " The racks and shelves seemed freshly stocked rather than picked over.
