    When you think about it. Truck drivers are the bone structure of us all.

    The base of our civilization. The food you eat. The close you wear right now. The computer screen your looking at. All got to you courtesy a truck driver.

    We owe them a lot of respect and to see someone this devoted to doing something this important get shot sickens me.

    Agreed; it is very sad that since Cain murdered Abel we, as a global society, have not advanced beyond killing each other. :(

BTW, was that the Bob Knight that coaches Texas Tech Basket Ball ? (J/K) Trying to see a brighter side......

    I like that show too.

    I agree, BTW, it'll never happen; just sad that we can't learn from our mistakes.

    Nope. 90 percent of our imported and exported goods are transported via container ships from docks such as LA and Houston.

New York has thousands of port docks , basically any land based city that is on a Ocean front has docks for ships to deliver to.I was amazed to learn that alot of the ships that travel the oceans also go inland via the great lakes, seen a show on History channel about it. Kinda cool.
    Yeah as an engineer for Union Pacific I haul numerous double-stack and triple-stack intermodel trains that originate from either Houston or LA. We call them Wal-Mart trains! I'm sure there are other ports south and east but UP only operates west of the Mississippi so thats how I know that. And on Modern Marvels they showed a special on how intermodel facilities operate and that was also kinda cool...

That is kinda cool to go in and look at. Union Pacific uses the tracks now I believe. I wish we had a train house to board civilian trains for travel here but the closest one is in Osceola Iowa. About 100 miles from my house.
    Yeah my job use to be KC to Council Bluffs. Then spend the night in Des Moines and take a train back to KC the next day. But got bumped off that and now mostly hauling coal and intermodels between KC and Coffeyville KS and Marysville KS...I'm at hotel in Marysville waitin for a train call as we type!...
