“Life is short. Eat dessert first.”
— Jacques Torres
Whenever it’s possible to do so without risking dereliction of duty, we try to ignore Occupant, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue—the world’s most expensive public housing unit. Too much of a bad thing can be, well, just too much.
This fortnight, though, we couldn’t resist catching up with Mr. Big Brain. Pass up a good laugh? In times like these? Thus we begin with a rant of a somewhat dessert-like nature.
We tried to tone down the levity with the Alleged News™, perhaps without much success. In our defense, when viewed from a perspective that is sufficient detached, U.S. tax policy is certainly laughable.
