Back in the 50's, my hometown relied on all kinds of transportaion for our economic survival. Approximately 85% of the jobs in the community were freight related. We had railroads, shipyards and trucking occupying half the acreage in the city. As kids we looked at going to truck driving schools like they were upper education facitlities. College seemed like a distant goal until the mid 60's. It was funny how the entire mind set of the people was so restricted. The only other areas I witnessed thinnking like this were in the coal mining belts.
