When Governor Christie talked about how expensive it was for New Jersey to clean up all the snow we’ve been having, my thought was ‘Couldn’t we find a kid to do that?  That’s because when I was a kid, snow for me was a windfall. But nowadays it seems to be a lost art.

Are there kids in your neighborhood who shovel? What’s the going rate?
