It Takes A Villa.

March 24, 2005 I loved the little shot IRS Commissioner Mark Everson got in during his news conference today trumpeting the $3.2 billion in unpaid taxes the agency has collected from its crackdown on the "Son of Boss" tax shelter.

March 18, 2005 Because it was the House Government Reform Committee that decided to anoint itself the investigator of steroids in baseball, I'm exercising my option to deconstruct the testimony of Mark McGwire yesterday.
