The American Way

One reason the Grand Old Party of Karl Rove and Dick Cheney (oh, and their puppet, George W.

Because we will all be rich someday, tax schemes that favor the rich are in all of our interest. As the kids say, "Duh!"

Roberto De Vido is a communications consultant, writer, cartoonist and jack of many trades. The former chief of Tucson Sentinel’s East Asia Bureau, he now lives in California (make of that what you will).
