"The Cradle of Liberty" by Jim Fedako

That's the nickname of the Boston area, a nickname that appears to be applicable once more.

Massachusetts looks to be the forefront of another revolution: the revolution to end the income tax. Last week, the Patriots over at the Center for Small Government reported that 100,000 signatures were delivered for validation and certification. This is another step in the arduous process to gain ballot access. Should the issue pass, the income tax in Massachusetts is done ... stick a fork in it.

The expression "stick a fork in it" is an idiom meaning to be done or finished. It is derived from the image of sticking a fork into a piece of meat to see if it is ready or not.
