I don't believe that's correct; if you are a US citizen, live outside the US and work outside the US, you are still liable to pay US taxes. Now, there is a fairly generous exclusion you can claim that, for most people, will completely nullify their tax obligation. But if you earn enough money (for 2011, the amount was US$92,900), you will still be liable for taxes on the marginal amount above the exclusion.

It's called the Foreign Earned Income Exclusion.

Everyone is interesting to somebody, even if it's just their local bartender/coworker/pizza delivery guy/romantic rival...
