Silly Jesus: At least their reporters admit that taxes on the wealthy are largely symbolic (class warfare) and have no real impact on the financial crisis.

Their wealthiest person was already in the process of packing up and leaving, I wonder if that had any impact on this decision.

In recent weeks, Gerard Depardieu - France's most famous actor - announced his intention to turn in his French passport and move to a village in a tax-friendly Belgium.

He has this really solid plan to grow flowers. It can't fail.
