Presidential Candidate Admits to Reading Tax Code and Regs "Cover to Cover"

Cox_2 This month's "Shop Talk" column in the Journal of Taxation has a great item on John Cox, long-shot 2008 Republican presidential candidate.  From an article quoting Cox in the Chicago Sun-Times:

When I had a dose of experience, I tried to move up, applying to Coopers and Lybrand, a large firm. Since I had the experience, they took a chance on me, even though I didn't go to a great Ivy League college. While there, I did what I advise, I read everything -- I read the entire Internal Revenue Code, the regulations and something called the BNA portfolios on taxes -- all cover to cover.  All this while going to law school at night. I got to the office at 5:30 a.m. and left at 6 p.m. to go to law school at night.
