Judge throws the book at Wesley Snipes. He fell for the old "federal income tax is illegal and you don't have top pay it" cult. Funny thing is, the way the income tax was created probably is unconstitutional, but, like the Air Force (likewise not created in conformance with the Constitution) there's not much you can do about it now.

I feel sorry to see Snipes go down like that. I don't know much about him, but maybe you remember the hilarious "Stuttering John" segments on the Howard Stern show in its heyday in the '90s. It was the ultimate celebrity ambush and it tended to show these people at their most unguarded (one of the virtues of Stern's show). Snipes, as I recall, handled it really well.
