Shoe shine men Marguerite Rivas sipoet If you haven't seen the Advance today check out the silive website to see the story on the shoe shine men. Today was their last day on the ferry. I will miss those ubiquitous fixtures. A friend of mine who is a doctoral student in communications at Rutgers did a study of the shoe shine men and how they engage people. She followed them around with a video camera and interviewed them. She has presented the paper at academic conferences and it is always a crowd pleaser.
