    This reminds me of the equipment in “The Conversation”.

    Sony Tapecorder 111— $79.50 would be $609 today and the Sony Sterecorder 464-D — $5199.50 would be over $39,000. If you made $5199.50 in 1961 you would be in the 22% tax bracket. In 2012 if you made $39,000 you would be in the 15% or 25% tax bracket depending on if you are married or single.

    Isn’t the current Republican presidential candidate in the 15% bracket?

    Poor fellow!
