    With the many threads re: the anticipated dwiddling (refinements) to the tax system, a story about Albert Einstein comes to mind. A colleague asked Dr. Einstein if he did his own taxes since he was seen as the greatest mathematician in the world. Dr. Einstein is reported to have replied: "The hardest thing in the world to understand is the income tax. It takes a philosopher." Best Regards, Ed

    Are you aware that "Big Tuna" was the name used by mobster Tony Accardo? That's not you, is it. If it is, I apologize for asking Mr. Accardo.

    dickgtax - Was not aware of the name association...got this "handle" from some skeet shooter buddies - maybe they wanted me "rubbed out". Time to change - don't like the idea of any name linked to a mobster in fun or otherwise. Signing off - last thread with this "handle".... Best Regards, Ed

    I thought the real "Big Tuna" was Bill Parcells.
