    Very sad news. We just saw him at the USATF Annual Meeting a couple weeks ago. Very dedicated to the sport. A darn good decathlete and an excellent official. They put his picture on the cover of the...

    The trade off if you want to tax Capital Gains at ordinary rates, would be to index them for inflation. Otherwise, you are taxing illusionary income.

    It is true David G is suspended although the betting is it will be short lived. Unfortunately, it keeps him from discussing this week in the L&L Committee the latest reforms he proposed. Worst case,...
