Dept. of Understatement

The following Newsbreak was published in the New Yorker in 1956 and is today rescued from obscurity here in honor of Tax Day. Sixty years ago, Barium Steel was a Fortune 500 company. Now it seems to be gone, perhaps on account of bad writing. Corporations still pay taxes, don't they?

The New Yorker, February 18, 1956, page 62
