I guess you can call this my first attempt at investigative journalism (while clearly exercising my right to editorialize).

My Congressman, Jason Chaffetz, is one of CNN.com's "Freshman Bloggers." His latest blog entry was titled, "Why we shouldn't use tax law as a weapon."

cnn.com/2009/POLITICS/03/31/chaffetz.bailouts/index.html

This edition of The Anglə is about how Chaffetz himself is basically using the word "tax" as a weapon of fear aimed at his own constituents.
