Tenacious, Truckers Continue To Deliver The Turkey And Gravy To Thankful Americans

In all likelihood, Americans will consume more than 50 million turkeys this Thanksgiving, and with very few exceptions, they will mostly all be delivered by truck. According to several sources, each of these trucks will carry 3,000 birds to their destiny: in the ovens and on America’s dinner tables this November. Now THAT is truly something we all should be thankful for.

Not Nearly As Thankful As One Might Think

Given how vital and how essential trucking and truck drivers are – especially in perpetuating the country’s most sacred institutions and societal norms (think of every holiday and national milestone) – it seems to this observer that some folks in the nation are less grateful for our truckers than they ought to be. It is truly a shame in this day and age for someone in the broadcast media to insinuate that somehow American truck drivers represent an existential threat to American society. It is certainly disappointing to see the race card played in this fashion. It seems to us that such commentary goes well beyond reasonable public discourse.
