Stand up and take a bow Joshua Smith. This 9 year old Detroit boy has set up a lemonade stand on the side of the road so he can help his city recover from that damn economic crisis. All proceeds from the sale of his lemonade and snacks will go to the city of Detroit, despite Mayor Dave Bing suggesting half should go to Joshua’s college fund.
