    Tony Podesta, founder of the Podesta Group and brother to former Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, will resign from his lobbying company in response to an investigation of the firm by special counsel Robert Mueller.

    Well, well, well what's this about?
    Mueller's indictment of Podesta's associate Paul Manofort?

    How refreshing to see Mr. Podesta say he will cooperate fully with the Mueller investigation, according to the article.

    I hope he's doing well. Being an O/O is a rough choice,....sometimes very lucrative,...but always very rough......

    I don't think it's very lucrative anymore, at least not at most places.

    I was one for years. As a rule, you either feed the truck, or feed the family- rarely both....

    In 1978 I aimed for $1.00 @ mile. Today, many rates I’ve seen are still that. Truck payments, fuel, parts, and insurance costs have more than tripled since. Regulations are stricter, food costs more, etc, etc. The the company tractor I drive costs thousands of dollars in repairs constantly, almost all because the Federally mandated EPA controls. The engines are much better built today, but EGR valves clog at least every 100,000 miles, causing the DOC/DPF exhaust to clog, the turbo to overheat, and fail. My boss had to put a $23,000 engine in mine at only 533,000 miles- on a 500,000 mile warranty, two years ago. The EGR heated the turbo, the turbo failed, oil ran thru the turbo, powered the injectors on motor oil. Bent piston rods, cracked the head.... He’s had to put two EGRs ,a DOC, and a fuel pump on just this month, about $8,000. As my wife tells me- be glad the bill isn’t ours!!!!!
