Terry Griffith, Pittsburgh’s Irish Balladeer, wrote a song about The Onorato Tax.
Here’s a snippet:
I sat down one evening to figure income tax.
I read the regulations and wrote down all the facts.
Before too long my pencil was just a little nub.
My head was aching badly so I went down to the pub.
I called for a pint of Guinness and it had a lovely head.
As the barman set it on the bar he looked at me and said.
I know it was six dollars the last time you were out
But now it’s six and sixty for a pint of Guinness stout.
Each and every time that Dan Onorato enters a restaurant in Allegheny County, this song should immediately be played over the sound system. Kind of like his own personal Hail to the Chief.
