Stephen King would like to pay some more taxes

I’ve loved Stephen King’s work and admired Stephen King as a man for years now. So this doesn’t surprise me. But it’s still worth putting here – his heartfelt plea for taxation, and for the rich to pay more of it:

The Koch brothers are right-wing creepazoids, but they?re giving right-wing creepazoids. Here?s an example: 68 million fine American dollars to Deerfield Academy. Which is great for Deerfield Academy. But it won?t do squat for cleaning up the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, where food fish are now showing up with black lesions. It won?t pay for stronger regulations to keep BP (or some other bunch of dipshit oil drillers) from doing it again. It won?t repair the levees surrounding New Orleans. It won?t improve education in Mississippi or Alabama. But what the hell?them li?l crackers ain?t never going to go to Deerfield Academy anyway. F–k em if they can?t take a joke.
