Taxation Is Fraud

Thanks for all your hard work to remind us that taxation is fraud [The Works, September 29]. Now, in the spirit of the now-trite acronym TIF, please consider my recommendation for the last sentence of the fourth-to-last paragraph: "...even though TIFs have diverted [read: extorted] as much as $310 million from readers of the Reader and others in Chicago over the past two years."

Maybe this sort of rhetoric would divert the attention of libertarians from gun hugging to more benevolent ends. (No, public schools are not benevolent.)
