posted by keeley | "Initially, the IRS will choose three agencies to collect back taxes... The agency later plans to increase the number of agencies, possibly selecting up to 12 across the nation..."

Remembering MLK: He Had a Dream

Antrim Caskey and Diane Krauthamer | In New York, a long line of people dressed in purple, the color of SEIU, wound around from the western edge of Central Park to its north end at 110th Street. The march began at Adam Clayton Powell and Central Park north and headed north to 125th street.
