I suppose every country gets the tax system it deserves. The new figures say that audits halved again in 2000 and 44% of them consist of audits of poor people. This protects the rich people's taxes from fraud by the poor people, but why do the rich people even bother to pay taxes? IRS auditors are not scared that they'll lose their jobs if they go after anyone who can fight back.

The latest Clinton scandal is that his half-brother Roger, just arrested for drunk driving, has been investigated for selling pardons (although I presume his own was free). Of course his pardon covers this. Jeez, evidently the man lives in Torrance. Isn't that punishment enough?
