Keeping its head while your child is losing theirs

Oh. My. God.

Topic 357 in the IRS's collection of tax writings is entitled "Tax Information for Parents of Kidnapped Children".

No, really, it is.

Don't let your own family kidnap your kid: if they do, you can't claim him or her as a dependent any more. It's important to keep your mind on the big picture in such a stressful situation. Certainly the IRS is.

(From a nice piece by Benjamin R. Cohen in The Morning News, whose Tournament of Books ends tomorrow.)
