    Great post. A business that gets kids off the streets and into jobs fixing our environmental messes. America could definitely use more of this!

    I loved your questions!

    Even I have a computer stored that I need to give to my dad! Such a relevant issue!

    Thanks for the love guys.

    I try to keep it conversational and fun — with Willie Cade that is pretty easy. What's tough is trying to figure out what to cut.
