and not to bring up the whole tuition tax imbroglio..... but I see a related historical note that the city did in fact once try to pass an "institution and service privilege tax" decades ago on both hospital admissions and college tuitions. What happened to it? It seems the hospital part was implemented first and was thrown out in court. So what goes around comes around. Can you spell p-r-e-c-e-d-e-n-t?
