As part of its bid to become the Least Cool City in America, Pittsburgh's City Council is preparing to vote on a plan to add a 1% tax to tuition bills for the 100,000 college students who call Pittsburgh home.

The mayor announced a one-week delay on the vote this morning, and colleges and students in the area are lobbying aggressively to get the mayor to back off the plan -- which, it should be noted, is one of the dumbest ideas in history.
