Update on the Lapps:

        A few weeks ago I posted an article on the Lapps, a mennonite family
that was being hard pressed by the IRS, which was threatening to confiscate the
family farm.  The Lapps, who are strict constitutionalists, held their ground
and refused to attend closed hearings with IRS agents.  They also refused to
hire an attorney.

        Recently, with no reason given, the IRS dropped its actions against the
Lapps.  The IRS did not say whether or not they would renew their actions
against the Lapps at a future time.
