Free Speech?

As if hating the Philadelphia Eagles weren't enough, here's another reason to hate on the city of brotherly love:

Between her blog and infrequent contributions to ehow.com, over the last few years she says she’s made about $50. To [Marilyn] Bess, her website is a hobby. To the city of Philadelphia, it’s a potential moneymaker, and the city wants its cut.

In May, the city sent Bess a letter demanding that she pay $300, the price of a business privilege license.

So much for free speech...
