Now that Barack has his job application site on line and everyone is in hurry up to be part of his efforts to change our landscape, I’d like to suggest a new cabinet position – Tinker Secretary.
Someone at mydd posed a question about our poorly maintained, depressing schools, who will pay to fix them?
I think that should be the job of the Tinker Secretary, TS. The TS would gather retired and available construction and invention experts who would then train and mentor kids in disadvantaged communities. These kids would practice in their own homes, fixing plumbing and electricity, repairing walls, painting (all green of course). And then they’d repair their school buildings.
But, do you know what’s the most green? it’s reusing what we already have, repairing what’s busted and unusable to make it glow and function again.
That’s what tinkers do.
That’s why we need the Tinker Secretary.
