The slimy owners of the Dodgers

Here's something to make your blood boil -- even if you're a Dodger fan. According to Michael Hiltzik of the Los Angeles Times, divorcing Dodger owners Frank and Jamie McCourt paid no federal taxes from 2004 through 2009 on a joint income of $108 million. Here's the lead -- To everyone who claims that our wealthiest citizens pay more than their fair share of income taxes and we should cut them a break because they're the ones who, you know, create jobs in our economy, I have four words for you:
Frank and Jamie McCourt.

UPDATE -- The judge in the case has vacated the May 24 trial date, meaning the Dodgers' ownership situation could remain in limbo for most of this season.

Even if this wasn't a Giants-Dodgers thing, I would still be enraged.
