[My first Post, so hopefully I have everything right...]

Video at the link. http://fora.tv/2008/12/12/Mike_Rowe_on_Discovery_Realization_and_Lamb_Castration

Very interesting talk on “work”. The first eight minutes are a bit rough, but hang in there. He has some astute observations on the value of work and the relevance of PETA, OSHA, etc.

If the first part leaves you squeamish, jump to the 11:00 time.

I’d vote for him, even though he is not running for anything.

I loved this quote from Mike on the Dirty Jobs episode “Brown Before Green 2”: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z0eMuV-NliA

Yeah he’s one of my favorite television personalities.

Very intelligent with a firm grasp on reality.

I love Mike Rowe, his show proves (over andover again) that there are no jobs that Americans won’t do.

Mike is doing a pretty fair job selling FORDs, too.

Warning: Either the site or video is infected with “Adware.GoonSquad”, so check your machine if you watch it. My Norton 360 caught, quarantined and deleted it. FYI.

Funny video, though.
