I hope all the Fox News haters, et al, on the forum will overlook the source of this great interview with Mike Rowe of "Dirty Jobs" fame. As a former Auto Mechanics teacher and strong proponent of the idea that not everyone belongs in college, I thoroughly enjoyed Mike's interview and hope others will also.
We have many tradesmen here on the forum who will likely testify to the conditions and predispositions Mike describes. (A friend of mine recently sold his half of a local Auto Repair Shop to his partner and retired early because one of the factors they were constantly fighting was finding good techs to wrench on the cars. 'Can't say as I blame him, much as I hated to see him go.)
I'm happy that Vocational Education has such a good, honest, decent, likable spokesman as Mike Rowe. Enjoy:
(BTW: This will be a good test of the forum's "tolerance," to see if those who can't stand the source --or the poster? -- gripe enough to have the interview deleted, regardless of the person being interviewed or what he says. I can't imagine many forum participants disagreeing with Mike's overall position. Perhaps an immediate Topic LOCK would be in order so members may enjoy Mike's good words and valuable insight without having to put up with petty nonsense about the venue in which he presented them.)
RIGHT ON, Mike. BP
