But none of that story will make much news. What does stand out from this interview is Greene's rather idiosyncratic ideas about how to create jobs for the troubled South Carolina economy.
"Another thing we can do for jobs is make toys of me, especially for the holidays. Little dolls. Me. Like maybe little action dolls. Me in an army uniform, air force uniform, and me in my suit. They can make toys of me and my vehicle, especially for the holidays and Christmas for the kids. That's something that would create jobs. So you see I think out of the box like that. It's not something a typical person would bring up. That's something that could happen, that makes sense. It's not a joke."Oh, dear - it's not a joke that his big "outside the box" idea for South Carolina jobs are Alvin Greene action figures. Sadly, I just don't think the market for such dolls is going to be large enough to bring down the unemployment rate. But he, at least the guy has an idea.
