The boy whose hot dog stand was shut down by a local government ten minutes after it opened is now homeless.


Week Four: Ninth Anniversary Fund-Raising Drive for Behind the Black
 

The fourth week of my annual anniversary fund-raising campaign for Behind the Black has begun.


I once again must thank the many readers and listeners who have generously donated this month. Right now there is a chance this will be the best fund-raiser ever, though only if a lot of people donate during the month's last ten days. If you want to help me continue my reporting, you can give a one-time contribution, from $5 to $100, or a regular subscription for as little as $2 per month.


For one time donations via Paypal, click here:

    Painting government as the problem here is a bit of a misnomer. Government is just doing the bidding of business. It did so years ago when it passed an ordinance restricting food carts, as allowing them would hurt the local restaurants who pay taxes. And now, if the secondary headline of the article is accurate, they took action against the boy because local small businesses (restaurants) wanted that action to take place. Lets face it…the only reason the Sporting Goods store allowed the boy to open the food cart was because the boy was selling things that did not impact his/her business. If the boy was selling batting helmets and hockey skates, not so sure he would have been so readily welcomed at that spot.
    But its just easier to blame government.
