The Great Eskimo Tax Scam

Spring is here, at least according to the calendar, and you probably aren’t thinking much about Eskimos as April 15 approaches. But here’s a fun story from the Wayback Machine to remind you it’s never the wrong time to pay attention to taxes. Back in 1971, President Nixon signed the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act. The law was intended to settle a long history of land disputes dating back to before Alaskan statehood. It distributed up to 104.5 million acres of land to the native tribes, paid out $962.5 million in cash, and created 13 “Alaska native regional corporations” to

A Little Tax Magic

You already know that our Congress is as gridlocked as at any time in recent history. Budget and spending bills get rolled up into year-end monstrosities. Urgent priorities like immigration reform get hijacked by partisan posturing and “appeals to the base.” The wizard Merlin himself would have a hard time pulling a sword from the solid block of stone that is today’s U.S. Senate. So here’s a welcome breath of legislative fresh air that everyone can support. Representative Pete Sessions (R-TX) and six colleagues have introduced House Resolution 642 “recognizing magic as a rare and valuable art form and national

The Humor Endures

The passing of former First Lady Nancy Reagan last week at age 94 marks a bit of an end to the 1980s. Nancy earned both praise and criticism for restoring what she saw as some much-needed Kennedy-esque pomp and circumstance to the White House. Later, she earned praise for her work against drug use and, in later years, for championing embryonic stem-cell research. The passage of time proved kind to Mrs. Reagan — her funeral drew an A-list of politicians, Hollywood celebrities, and even former A-Team start “Mr. T,” whom Nancy befriended as part of her “Just Say No” campaign.

The actress Sally Field has appeared in dozens of television and movie roles since first appearing as “Gidget.” But she’s perhaps best known for a 45-second acceptance speech at the 57th Academy Awards, when she accepted the Oscar for Best Actress and told the audience “you like me . . . you really like me!” Late last month, that same group of the world’s most narcissistic people gathered to congratulate themselves once again. They heard comedian Chris Rock skewer the Hollywood establishment for their “sorority racism.” They saw the winners take the stage to spread the word on pet political

Taxes Without Zaxes

March 2 marks the birthday of Theodore Geisel — better known to millions of children and former children as Doctor Seuss. That’s reason enough to celebrate. But the beloved author’s birthday is especially noteworthy this year. Archivists working at the Geisel Library have discovered an early draft of the author’s most famous classic — and it seems there’s something the book’s unnamed narrator detests even more than Green Eggs and Ham. That’s right — he hates paying taxes just as much as you do! Slippery taxes on my boat. Smelly taxes on my goat . . . . Income taxes
