MILTON FRIEDMAN sometime hero of liberty, but also cursed inventor of the payroll withholding tax has died.

Well, if nothing else, he gave the world his son David, who gave the world his absolutely fascinating research into the laws of medieval Iceland -- laws which "might almost have been invented by a mad economist to test the lengths to which market systems could supplant government in its most fundamental functions."
