SEATTLE ESPRESSO PARTY?

A pressure group in Seattle called, The Early Learning and Care Committee, wants to impose a tax on espresso drinks. Here is a quote by the campaign manager, Lisa Moy:

"Taxing espresso drinks is a guaranteed source of income in Seattle, where many residents can't get through the day without a caffeine hit."

I read about this story on Rick Schrager's web site, Technoerotica.net. Read the article, Seattle Latte Levy May Brew Revenue, on CBS News.
