    Free Lunch is my favorite. The ultra rich write their own rules. Mickleson's payments are likely structured to stay away from payroll income. For instance, sponsors probably pay for his private jet and it goes undeclared as income whereas normally it would cost him $4000 per hour to fly.

      major corporations skirt the rules and screw the rest of us. His newest, Fine Print, is also interesting, and we just lived through the garbage company consolidation -- a mega-company bought out our small local collector. Within two quarterly cycles our rates went up 9 percent for no good reason. We'll be changing companies next quarter -- which will be fine until they, too, are bought out.
