Oregon County Apologizes to 7-Year-Old Girl After Saying She Can't Have Lemonade Stand

First, "Oregon County" is not a living being, it is an artificial person, so "Oregon County" is incapable of apologizing.

Second, Jeff Cogen, chairman of the Multnomah County Board of Commissions, reportedly said, “Our health department what they were trying to do, I understand…I just feel like we have to be able to distinguish between a 7 year old, who is selling lemonade and trying to learn about business and someone who actually has a business.”

Jeff, I can't think of any better way to teach an entrepreneurial-spirited 7-year-old-girl who the Omnipotent Benefactor of her business is than to slap that $500 fine on her for selling lemonade without a license, posthaste. Can you?
