1) I’m a Senior Fellow at the Cato Institute, Washington’s premier free-market think tank.
2) A left-wing newspaper in the U.K. wrote that I’m “a high priest of light tax, small state libertarianism.” I assume they meant it as an insult, but it’s the nicest thing anyone’s ever said about me. Except perhaps the time I was called the “Guardian Angel” of taxpayers.
3) My hobbies are softball (decent player), basketball (hopeless), and skiing.
4) I’m a passionate Georgia Bulldog, so much so that I would have trouble choosing between a low-rate flat tax for America and a national title for the Dawgs. I’m not kidding.
