Jim Merkel or Steve Urkel?

This Whiz Kid might just be on to something when he notes that, “another advantage of the switch would be to increase the number of jobs in the Upper Valley,” adding that “the program might make it easier for locals, including the spouses of professors, to find employment.”

I’m almost positive that Tommy Lee Woon’s wife would have preferred to stay in Hanover had she known that a well paying gig with a sweet corn stand would be headed her way in the near future.
