Mikey vs. Jimbo 

 Regarding the letter from Mr. Jim Arcaro (December 29): 

 Hey Jim, love your logic! It’s about time someone presented this argument. But just to be sure, let me see if I follow you: If you send your child to a private school and if you pay taxes for public schooling then you are paying for someone else’s child and should therefore be reimbursed somehow. Am I correct so far?  

Sounds great! Because you see, I have no children and under the present system am paying taxes for the public and private schooling of someone else’s child, namely yours! So where’s my voucher, Jimbo?
