Seattle Times letters to the editor

Pornography tax

Make money, break a habit

The idea of taxing porn is magnificent [“Bill seeks 18.5% porn tax,” Local News, Feb. 11]!

The smokers and drinkers of this country are tired of raised taxes every time the state needs more money. Porn is another bad habit that can be done away with if the price is high enough.

— Sarah Murnen, Kalkaska, Mich.
