Todd Rundgren wants you to pay your taxes

Shaming Those Who Skip Out on Taxes. (The New York Times, 4/15/2015)
Public shaming is already used throughout the world to collect taxes. The city of Bangalore, India, hires drummers as tax collectors to visit the homes of tax evaders and to literally bang the drum if they don’t pay. In England, Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs publishes details of deliberate tax defaulters. Argentine local governments are also adopting shaming lists.  [Bold added.]
