Submission + - Philadelphia Charging Bloggers $300 (citypaper.net)

geoffrobinson writes: The City of Philadelphia, suffering from budget problems like many municipalities, has started to charge their $300 "business privilege" tax against bloggers. Yes, in Philadelphia running a business is a privilege.
