A couple of weeks ago--on the day Obama was inaugurated, in fact--I wrote of driving down Bagley Rd in suburban Cleveland, and seeing some guy--it may have been a girl, there was a snowstorm--standing on the side of the road dressed up like the Statue of Liberty and waiving a cardboard torch. At the time, I thought it was some nut--I mean that in the best, possible way. I voted for Obama, too-- celebrating the peaceful transfer of power. I thought wrong. It had nothing to do with the inauguration. It was actually an advertisement for a tax preparation service. "Liberty" is the company's name.
Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled earned home investment equity tax credits
Yearning to breathe free...
