Sorry, Baltimore Sun, it is laughable to think that Baltimore can control much of anything, much less the squeegee kids. Your editorial, “Baltimore needs a holistic approach toward ‘squeegee kids’" (Sept. 17), is wishful thinking in the belief that these kids are willing to conform to any limitations on making a buck. Being free to work when and where they please, pay no taxes, follow no rules and have no overhead costs make doing windshields a dream job.
Spending a million dollars for a squeegee alternative program is insane in a city that is broke and overwhelmed with staggering issues with crime, high taxes, pathetic schools and a shrinking population. Fix those real problems first and then worry about the kids who will completely ignore you anyway.
