Connecting the dots? Count me in.

I enjoyed Lou Grumet's Publisher's Column "Connecting the Dots: The Estate Tax and Social Security" (October 2007). What a wonderful idea! Alas, what are the chances in this era of hostile politics for such a proposal to even begin to see the light of day? I must admit that my own prejudices will leap to the fore as I rail against politicians who demonize the estate tax, preferring to use the "death tax" sobriquet that seems to find a sympathetic audience, primarily among those who will never be either the direct or indirect subject of that levy.

In any event, if you feel that grassroots supporters might be helpful in getting some air under your proposal, count me in and let me know what I can do.
