Your headline regarding Seth Wescott’s tax situation was nothing short of a publicity stunt to sell papers.

This young man travels internationally, working at his craft. He runs a business, is a spokesperson for the state and a role model for young and old alike.

While not excusing him from paying his taxes, remember, someone else is probably running the business end of things, and someone dropped the ball.

Yes, Wescott is ultimately responsible, and he has made arrangements to set things right. The headline was inflammatory and defamatory.
