"It is my … hope and aspiration that all of us … may eventually be gathered together in a heaven of everlasting rest and peace and bliss - except the inventor of the telephone." - Mark Twain, circa 1878 Introduction After more than 120 years, if a single improvement could be made to Twain’s curmudgeonly comment it would be the word "taxation."
