Au contraire, Stephen Victor did not write the above. He merely quoted it.
Indeed, he too wondered why the writer was under the impression that taxes had
been raised during the Reagan administration, since the hallmark of that
administration was tax cutting (along with military spending). Now Stephen
Victor is wondering what is possessing him to write of himself in the third
person. :)
