A Government Agency that Gets It

MinniFirst off, what POS would report a 13-year-old kid for selling hot dogs in a neighborhood? As a true believer in karma, there's a special place waiting for that individual.

But, what happened next is pretty freaking cool.

According to the CNN story, Jaequan Faulkner had been cooking hot dogs outside his home in North Minneapolis to raise money for new clothes. The Minneapolis Department of Health got the call and, instead of shutting him down, worked with him to get a permit. As Minneapolis Environmental Health Director Dan Huff said. "Let's make this a positive thing and help him become a business owner."

So cool.
