Mr. Stoll, I'm shocked that while reviewing this morning's NYT you didn't immediately focus on their op-ed piece on the wealth tax. I've long suspected that limosine (perhaps we should now say Gulfstream V) liberals greatly fear this European favorite that thier champaign socialists hate and endorse higher income tax rates to deflect from this interesting proprosal which focuses on where the money really is and is the answer to inequality.
