Government funding runs more smoothly, especially in larger amounts, when the taxpayer is soaked gradually.

Although the grand larceny is unremitting, April 15 still has its unique significance, for it is this date by which most Americans have to submit their tax forms, often exhausted from an excruciating effort to accurately account for their financial affairs from the past year, dreading that an arithmetic error or misreading of the illegible tax code might land them in federal prison. It is an onerous imposition for millions. It is a reminder that our government is essentially an extortion racket.
