William R. Casey wrote in his letter “Paging Cincinnatus” (May 31 and TribLIVE.com): “Rome had Cincinnatus to save it (for a while). Is there such a man in our future?”

I am suggesting that maybe, only maybe, his distant relatives are already here and working in the IRS office in Cincinnati.

I guess that over the millennia, the “SPQR” emblazoned on the standards carried by the Roman legions morphed from the initialized Latin phrase “ Senatus Populusque Romanus ” (“The Senate and People of Rome”) into “IRS” (“Immensely Ruinous through Searches”), so there's no help coming from his heirs.
