    Sometimes the curtain is pulled aside, allowing us to see what’s going on in the often-opaque worlds of government and finance. Such an occasion has been happening with what’s being called the Panama Papers, released April 3 by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists. It’s going to take years to wade through the estimated 11 million documents leaked from a Panamanian law firm that specializes in crafting tax shelters.
