Always Bet on Black
Following reason contributor Tim Cavanaugh's "iron principle that even inadvertent tax cheats are secret tax rebels," I'm happy to report that b-movie bad boy and convicted tax outlaw Wesley Snipes remains a free man while his appeal is pending. But as Reuters ominously notes:
U.S. District Judge William Terrell Hodges wrote that he was "dubious" of Snipes appeal arguments. But Hodges agreed to bail, noting that Snipes otherwise could easily serve his entire sentence before a decision could be reached on his appeal.
