- ``One is, therefore, in fairly sedate baby-kissing
company if one says (perhaps overcautiously) that the tax structure is
a pullulating excrescence negating common sense, a parody of the
gruesomely ludicrous, a surrealist zigzag pagoda of pestilent greed, a
perverse thing that makes the prerevolutionary French system seem
entirely rational.''-Ferdinand Lundberg, The Rich and the
Super-rich, Bantam Books, Inc., 1968, Page 391.
