I know Karl Kleinpaste, who was mentioned at the bottom of this article: http://www.post-gazette.com/neigh_west/20020412wburbs9.asp

I have mixed feelings about his attempts to avoid paying taxes. I tend to be relatively docile about taxpaying, and from that point of view, I think he's a little wacky. On the other hand, he seems to have encountered a lot of incompetence and inattention to laws in the IRS, and that does concern me.


Bloomfield seems like a fairly normal Italian working-class neighborhood. The houses are packed tightly together, there's a strong Catholic presence, you can occasionally hear people speaking Italian, et cetera.

So I was surprised to see a Leather Pride Flag hanging from a second-floor window just off Liberty. Very interesting...
