(Dumbest) Quote of the Day

“It’s like Florida taxing oranges.” - Richard J. Doherty, president of the Association of Independent Colleges and Universities, explaining why taxing such a strong institution as Harvard would not be good.

The problem with his analogy, as James D. Miller, the author of this article, points is that Florida does in fact tax the orange growing industry. Taxes are never good thing for a business, but that is not a good enough excuse for schools like Harvard to get away with not paying taxes.
