    Nobody is debating the value of the architectural restrictions. The point is that he illegally took a tax deduction for "voluntarily" maintaining the historical facade of a house that he is already REQUIRED to maintain by law. He committed tax fraud.

        because it goes to whether the new restrictions being added to the old actually decreased the value by $281K or not. And that is the whole ballgame here.

        Republicans...think the American standard of living is a fine thing--so long as it doesn't spread to all the people. And they admire the Government of the United States so much that they would like to buy it. Harry S. Truman
