Here's a reminder from the Seattle Post-Intelligencer's Web site: Today the Seattle City Council may decide whether to let voters consider a 20 cent-per-bag tax on plastic and paper grocery bags. Seattle had passed a bag fee last year, but a petition kept the ordinance from taking effect. Now the City Council will decide whether to let a public referendum decide the issue once and for all. For amusement, check the comments on the PI's Strange Bedfellow blog about the issue. But be prepared for lots of name calling -- apparently Seattle is riddled with "eco-zealots" "cakesniffing ecoyuppies" and "Marxists," if you believe the commenters...
