We all know, I suspect, who Mike Rowe is. Yeah, that one, the host of Dirty Jobs on the Discovery Channel. He testified to Congress recently about real jobs and college, he has a lot to say as well as being on point. I found this over at Chicks on the Right, and am reliably informed by them (and their readers) that he’s not too hard to watch. So watch the video and then we’ll talk about it.
The first thing that struck me is how much like my Dad Mike’s Grandpa was. Able to do everything needed and do it professionally. Reshingle the roof? Sure, and build the house under it too, and it was the best built house I’ve ever been in. Want a color TV? Build it from a kit. Need a car to tow behind your motor home? buy one from a friendly wrecker operator with a frozen engine and rebuild it over the winter in an unheated garage.
