How about a newsprint tax?

Your editorial about "antiquated" city schools and MayorStephanie Rawlings-Blake's renovation plan with funding from an "extended and increased bottle tax" ("Bottle tax, or what?" April 22) made a lot of sense to me. But why stop there?

How about a new nickel tax on newsprint? City subscribers could easily afford the extra nickel tax on newspapers. City pupils would experience a renaissance of learning in their newly-renovated buildings. And local landfills would be spared from ever-increasing truckloads of empty bottles and day-old newspapers.

Best of all, you will be able to tell local grocers that The Sun will proudly share in the noble sacrifice with them.
