“Wicked meaning in a lawful deed.” – All’s Well That Ends Well

Is Gerard Depardieu a monster?  I’ve seem him called such because he gave up his French citizenship and became a Russian on January 3 simply to avoid high taxes.  I do think he’s an ass – though more for his treatment of women and people in general, than for his views on taxation.  Admittedly, I might be slightly peeved if I faced a 75% taxation rate as well.  In the end, I guess the joke is on him as it appears the French constitutional court struck down the high tax rate as “confiscatory.”  At least he has easy access to great caviar now…
