Quote of the Day (Russell Baker, With a ‘Taxpayer’s Prayer’)

“Oh Mighty Internal Revenue Service, who turneth the labor of man to ashes, we thank thee for the multitude of thy forms which thou hast set before us and for the infinite confusion of thy commandments, which multiplyth the fortunes of lawyer and accountant alike.”— Russell Baker, “A Taxpayer’s Prayer to the Almighty IRS,” originally in The New York Times, reprinted in The Morning News (Wilmington, Del.), Apr. 10, 1977
