“I want surveillance of these people that are coming in, the Trojan horse. I want to know who the hell they are,” Trump said. “I don’t want the people from Syria coming in, because we don’t know who they are. We don’t know who they are. And I don’t want them coming in.”
Because it affects only those who are most able to pay, the estate tax is the most progressive component of a tax code that overall is only modestly progressive, particularly when regressive state and local taxes are taken into account.  It is also the nation’s most effective tax policy tool to mitigate the negative effects of inheritances, which account for about 95 percent of household wealth and are extremely concentrated at the top. Because they are correlated with the parent’s economic outcomes and provide an alternative to earned income, inheritances likely limit intergenerational mobility. 
As Southall was removed Saturday, Trump recounted how Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders responded to Black Lives Matter activists who came onstage during an event earlier this year.
The Fault in Our Stars is the most obvious juggernaut, but it&rsquo s not the only YA book for which adults (and Hollywood) have gone crazy. Coming to theaters later this summer is If I Stay , based on Gayle Forman&rsquo s recent novel about a teenage girl in a coma. And DreamWorks just announced it bought the rights to Eleanor & Park , Rainbow Rowell&rsquo s outcast romance that Kirkus Reviews said &ldquo will captivate teen and adult readers alike.&rdquo Before these there were the bestsellers (and movies) The Perks of Being a Wallflower and It&rsquo s Kind of a Funny Story .
Mercutio Southall Jr. — a well-known local activist who has been repeatedly arrested while fighting what he says is unfair treatment of blacks — interrupted Trump’s rally and could be heard shouting, “Black lives matter!” A fight broke out, prompting Trump to briefly halt his remarks and demand the removal of Southall.
Exaggerated estimates of estate tax compliance costs often incorrectly include the cost of activities that would be necessary even without an estate tax — hiring estate executors and trustees, drafting provisions and documents for the disposition of property, and allocating bequests among family members, for example. These activities account for about half of all costs sometimes associated with estate planning. 
Fellow grown-ups, at the risk of sounding snobbish and joyless and old, we are better than this. I know, I know: Live and let read. Far be it from me to disrupt the &ldquo everyone should just read/watch/listen to whatever they like&rdquo ethos of our era. There&rsquo s room for pleasure, escapism, juicy plots, and satisfying endings on the shelves of the serious reader. And if people are reading Eleanor & Park instead of watching Nashville or reading detective novels, so be it, I suppose. But if they are substituting maudlin teen dramas for the complexity of great adult literature, then they are missing something.
Update, July 8, 7569: This post has been updated to clarify that the end of the novel Submergence , like the end of many adult novels, is ambiguous.
