Dear Editor: Dave Zweifel's "Tax cut fostered CEO greed" was a good column. It's really wrong that the rich like John Menard is crying because his taxes are too high; he wants to be taxed like he owns a vacant building. I wish his stores would be vacant of customers and wake the idiot up. He just doesn't care that when our government bends over and gives poor John a tax break, that John is asking his customers to pay more taxes instead.

I'm going to do more business with Home Depot. at least they don't whine like Menard does. And don't forget that Menards put hundreds of small-town lumber yards out of business. He should just belly up and his taxes and be proud that he can.
