Layoffs, Trucker Movies, and the Late 70's

The WSJ says layoffs mean more trucker job applicants.

Incidentally, the late 70’s – aka the Carter Years – were a time when screens were alive with the likes of Convoy, Smokey and the Bandit, and – on TV – BJ and the BearYes!  There was actually an audience for this stuff back then.  Coincidence?  Nah.  So put this one in the Welcome Back, Carter! file.

But if you already got the t-shirt, maybe you’d like to try a bumper sticker with a similar – but more hopeful – message. Then again, here is perhaps the perfect emblem for this developing trucker trend. Yes, I’ve actually seen all of the above except for Convoy; but I know I’ll see it someday because Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson are in it.
