Trucks on the road, they work hardAug 05 2011

A nice piece, poignant even, about that so-called slow-moving truck driver you flipped off on the highway the other day.

Let me tell you a little about the truck driver you just flipped off because he was passing another truck, and you had to cancel the cruise control and slow down until he completed the pass and moved back over. His truck is governed to 68 miles an hour, because the company he leases it from believes it keeps him and the public and the equipment safer.

(The title of the post is from one of my kids' favorite books: Trucks.)
