Nice story. But he walks 7 miles to his job and 13 back...say what?????

At 3.1 average MPH that would be about 7 hours just walking assuming no breaks either way. Assuming an 8.5 hours on the job, assuing not arriving early, that means he spends 7 hours walking 8.5 working which leaves about 9 hours for everything else. It would be like working a double everyday.

Glad someone is helping him out, kinda in the face of all those who say Americans are lazy or are greedy.

There's great public sympathy for a black man who walks 10 miles to his job and 10 miles home on the dangerous streets of Detroit. He's saying, "Look at me. I represent hope. I care enough to work hard and to make sacrifices. This is the path." That's all heresy to democrats of course. Dangerous heresy. Meanwhile the outpouring from American working stiffs reached $257,000 for Mr. Robertson. That'll get you an awfully nice commuter vehicle. I'll bet it won't be electric. I couldn't be happier for him. God bless you Mr. Robertson.

Liberals and welfare bums should be ashamed.

His car broke down and he didn't have the stash of cash to fix it...

Why would I- a hard working employed liberal be ashamed by this story of a hard working American?

He is a great example to everyone for his dedication to showing up to get the job done.

Good for him.

Glad he is getting some help.
