The strength of a nation is derived from the integrity of its homes. ---Confucius

    When I was doing my son's taxes the other day, I discovered that my boy made EIGHTEEN TIMES more money than I did last year. Normally I'd feel like a failure if I didn't know what I was doing. Working at Arco is making me strong enough and mean enough to take that cross-country freight train boxcar Willie adventure I've been dreaming about. It's taking longer than I thought to shape up for jumping on and off boxcars, but I was probably fatter than I thought, too.
