Pulling the wool over our eyes . . . again

Must be something in the eggnog. Yesterday in a comment at MNSpeak, Bob from the ALAMN betrayed one of his fundamental communications principles -- don’t criticize the person that buys your lunch. In today’s Pioneer Press, City council Member Jay Benanav reveals one of his principles of tax policy.

About a proposed fee plan that would tack a $25 fee onto the tuition bill to cover the cost of city services associated with colleges and universities within the city limits, Benanav noted the fee is modest when compared with the annual costs of education.
“I don’t want to say it’s nothing, but it gets lost in the shuffle,” Benanav said.
As every good poker player knows, you can shear a sheep forever, but you can only skin it once.
