GREEDY GOVERNMENTS: Philly requiring bloggers to pay $300 for a business license. As our profligate politicos get more and more desperate for cash, look for more stuff along these lines.

UPDATE: Reader Trent Nix thinks it’s about more than money:

One thing that you didn’t mention on Philadelphia requiring bloggers to pay $300 for a “license” is that it has the side effect of giving the city a weapon to use against those pesky anonymous bloggers. If you don’t pay, they have empowered themselves to go after you, attempting to ensure nobody is going to lob any grenades behind the veil of anonymity.

The losers who put this nonsense in place should have their pictures plastered everywhere as enemies to free speech. City politics tend to be the place where the nexus of stupidity and vanity are at their greatest.

Amen.
