Maule's Tax Blog Featured in Wall Street Journal

Friday, August 13, 2004

Jim Maule's blog item comparing teaching tax to teaching the rules of cricket, blogged here three weeks ago on TaxProf Blog, was featured in Tom Herman's Tax Report in Thursday's Wall Street Journal:

"Whoever invented cricket died, and then [was] reincarnated, as the inventor of income tax," Prof. Maule writes in his blog, "Mauled Again," at

"Perhaps if I begin the basic tax class with a cricket rules lesson, the students will be thrilled to ease up with a study of the Internal Revenue Code, its regulations and all the law associated with it," he writes.
