Lemonade, Lemonade, Lemonade, Whew!

It looks like some kids inMaryland operating a lemonade stand for charity didn’t pay their local rent seekers.

Jennifer Hughes, the director of permitting for the county… says they’ve warned all kinds of other vendors they couldn’t operate near the US Open because of concerns about traffic and safety.

Which really means:

…because of concerns about traffic and safety they haven’t paid their protection money to government bureaucrats.

I’m surprised the parents weren’t fined for violating minimum wage and child labor laws also.

  1. did you catch the conan o’brien dartmouth commencement speech? –

  2. here in anchorage, we are trying to reduce our ‘homeless problem’ by legislating a fee unto drivers who donate to people on the sidewalks from their cars.
    fireworks are illegal, but they have a ‘waiver day’ on the fourth of july.
    we are wondering if they will have a similar waiver for the couple of days the fireman have a ‘boot drive’ wherin they stand on sidewalks and ask people to put money into a boot from their car.
