Its the revenue, stupid. Something is wrong with the members of the Durango City Council. Can’t they read? Or do they choose not to read the numerous letters to the editor objecting to the proposed plastic-bag tax? Letters to the Herald opposing the bag tax are 5-to-1 over the empty letters repeating the same environmental rhetoric over and over, and over again.
There must be some reason that the councilors are so intent on passing a bag tax. It has to be the revenue: If it’s anything else, it would either be idiotic or criminal.
