    Must have just read the kid’s version of “Atlas Shrugged.”
    Gave great deal of thought before posting the above comment. As a rule, I try to avoid political natured posts on C&H and I advise others to do the same.
    This strip however spoke to the philosophy that screams Ayn Rand so I felt my post is appropriate.

    You forgot that you have to walk back, Calvin?

    He can walk on the snow, he doesn’t weigh that much at his age, he’ll be fine.

    He’ll just shovel it and fill it back in. That is one stubborn kid (have a nephew just like him),

    Well, I see the name on all sorts of political commentary sites, usually in a derogatory tone. But have not the first clue what it means. It apparently means something to lots of people; but not particularly to me.
    To my mind, most political commentary newer than maybe 30 years old is not worth much, because it hasn’t had time to be tested by history.

    Calvin sounds like my 8th grade math teacher, who said she never gave As in class because “nobody ever gave me anything.” In those days, grades were earned, so her logic was way off. I heard the same from an ESL teacher I used to work with: “If a student gets a perfect paper they shouldn’t be in my class, they should be in a higher one.” Nice way to encourage people to study, there, dummy.

    So, you’re foregoing the shoveling fee, Calvin?

    re: reshive

    A factor that makes a lot of commentary/analysis poor in our media is that it’s done by people who graduated in journalism. When I was at university in the late 1990s, it was one of those degrees that people called “party degrees” because most of those in it spent their time time partying. And so when a person who graduates after wasting most of their time at college tries to analyze something without at least a rudimentary background in history, political science, etc. that journalist usually does a very poor job.
    Science reporting is even worse.
    If I had the money, I’d start a network where the people hired had actual background in what they would be writing about. People who’d actually done things, rather than just writing about them and getting it wrong.

    Not to put to fine a point on it but your chosen name screams politics.

    In simplest terms: Calvin isn’tg getting paid to clean the front walk(He’s getting no benefit from shoveling). I don’t either but it is my sidewalk(another min 4 inches today and tonight) ! !

    I hope you have to go to the bathroom in a hurry, Calvin.

    I was just about to post exactly the same thing, with exactly the same caveat. It was really hard not to think otherwise.
