May 11, 2008
A young man who works in the oil field in the Texas Panhandle and that
I personally know, got the following notice with his paycheck this
last Friday, 05-09-08. THIS IS NOT A RUMOR! I have held the actual
notice in my own hands, seen the actual notice with my own eyes and
have retyped it verbatim as follows:
'FROM JUNE 3, 2008, ABOUT 10,000 TRAINED AND CERTIFIED OFFICERS WILL
BLANKET THE ROADWAYS OF NORTH AMERICA TO PREVENT TRUCK AND BUS
ACCIDENTS AND SAVE LIVES. KNOWN AS ROAD CHECK 2008, FEDERAL, STATE,
PROVINCIAL, AND LOCAL OFFICERS WILL BE CONDUCTING NORTH AMERICAN
STANDARD INSPECTION AROUND THE CLOCK FOR 72 HOURS FROM JUNE 3-5. THE
INSPECTIONS INVOLVE A COMPREHENSIVE 37-STEP PROCEDURE WHICH INCLUDES
ITEMS RELATED TO VEHICLE, DRIVER, AND CARGO SAFETY.'
Isn't that interesting language they used? Jone 3-5 (Tue., Wed, Th.)
looks like good days to stay home.
