For the record, Scot [Globe columnist Scot Lehigh] asked me about this issue two weeks ago in a
general context. I have a long history on this one, having released my
income tax returns in all 5 of my campaigns for the legislature. Also,
it was a major point of contention between me and my chief opponent in
my 1996 run for Congress. While I certainly do not intend to talk about
this issue unless asked, I also do not intend to pretend that I have no
position after 32 years of espousing one.
