    I think people are stressed in this area because it used to be a nice laid back community of sorts. You could move around from one side of the city to another quicky and easily before the lock down. We knew people were moving here during the pandemic but did not really know the scope of it. They were sneaking in while everyone sat at home oblivious. When we opened up last month there were all of a sudden 2 million or more people on the street to deal with. Some communities in the tri-county area are overwhelmed with it. It’s Unreal.

    The Information Age has brought with it some great things. Mainly Education. Also a lot of negatives. I think some people just get overloaded with negative information, true or false, adding to their daily stress. Next thing you know, their brain jumps time.

    And Oddly some
    Shootings get zero coverage.

    like if the shooter is not a
    White male republican it gets zero coverage after the first day .

    Ever read Freakonomics? They found a correlation between women's access to medical care (which includes elective abortions) and a decrease in the crime rates. The theory was reducing the amount of unwanted children reduced the amount of kids growing up in unstable homes and getting into trouble later.

    I'm surprised someone hadn't snapped before that at a freight company.

    That dude did at Schneider some years ago in Texas. All he really wanted was the terminal manager.

    Back in the day gender neutral dispatcher didn’t run his mouth without consequences.
    You went out back and settled it. And that methodology worked far better.

    Anyone ever been apart of a motorcycle organization?
    There are ### whoopins for when you f up. And you stand there and take it. As a man.
