Thoreau on slavery and taxes

Tax protester extraordinaire David Gross has established a page on his website devoted to Henry David Thoreau's Slavery in Massachusetts, written in 1854. It's a passionate piece and a great read.

Oh, and in a wonderful serendipity, when I clicked on it, the webpage happened to be headed by a Thoreau quote (Mr. Gross says that these quotes pop up at random on his site): "It is for no particular item in the tax bill that I refuse to pay it. I simply wish to refuse allegiance to the State."

Grin.

Your readers may be twice-disappointed: first off, your link is malformed (it has a double "http://http://" in it); secondly, the quote at the top of the pages on my site is randomly-picked – you just got lucky to have gotten the Thoreau quote when you visited.

Here’s the correct link: http://sniggle.net/Experiment/index.php?entry=sim, and here’s my introduction.

Duly noted and corrected, Mr. Gross. Very glad you stopped by (and pointed out my goofs).
