This one always seems a bit flat to me (though I never remember that far enough in advance to protect myself). I think Rex Stout, not just Nero Wolfe, had some problems with marginal income tax rates up to 91%, and took every opportunity to grind that axe. Well, I agree with him, but sometimes it's not really good for the books.
