After a complaint threatened to shutter a young boy's hotdog stand, US city officials decided instead to rally behind him to keep it open.

Jaequan Faulkner, 13, has been selling hotdogs outside his home in North Minneapolis, in the Midwestern state of Minnesota, since 2016.

His stand was at risk of closure after someone reported him for not having a permit, local media say.

Instead, city staff helped him obtain a permit and get back to work on Monday.

After receiving the complaint a few weeks ago, the Minneapolis department of health chose a different approach to simply closing the boy's venture.

"When I realised what it was, I said, 'no, we're not just going to go and shut it down'," said Minneapolis Environmental Health Director Dan Huff to CNN.

"We can help him get the permit."

A health inspector supplied Jaequan with the necessary equipment, including thermometers and cleaning stations, and taught him how to comply with health standards.

As you know one of my guilty pleasures is "Big Brother" as it reminds me of the multiple times I was in an in patient rehab, this time there are two white males who are "bros" and not Bernie "bros" that I know of just the usual obnoxious tough guy bros.

The nerd of the group targeted them and their response was to whine and complain as if they should be off limits, and it makes sense if you have lived a life of total privilege to be upset when someone treats you like everybody else.

It reminded me of republicans in general. But now they control the courts so even if rump is impeached, damage is done, too late to stop what will be massive harm and many deaths.
