Many people support 'behavior taxes'

Editor:

One of the obvious flaws in Larry Tradlener's latest word from McElmo Canyon regards the "Suntan Tax" and its subtle method of controlling human behavior: Has the author not heard of a cigarette tax, or a tax on alcohol? These are also attempts at controlling human behavior and have been in effect for years. Many people regard them as excellent methods of promoting a healthier life, reducing health costs, and are therefore justified. I will attempt to point out more fallacies in my next letter.
