Local Dentist, Busted for Tax Evasion, Gives Me New Band Name

Wesley David Bowden, a 64-year-old dentist, stopped paying taxes in 1992 after being audited. Apparently, that’s frowned upon. So he’s going to the joint at some point in the near future. Whatever. The real takeaway from this is, during Bowden’s protestations, he hit on the perfect name for my new Dirty South polka band: Inland Pirates.

    Be nice.

    Staying in rank with the pirate theme, inside the pokey (pun intended) Doc Bowden will certainly become a master at baiting the “meat hook!”

    Most of us pay taxes out of fear, NOT because we want to or believe we should. Dr. Bowden had the courage to do what many of us would like to do – tell the government we’re not paying THEIR way anymore. Unfortunately, he will pay a high price for bucking the (tainted) system!
