What a beautiful sentiment; the idea of spending more time near home with family and friends. I'm surprised some enterprising song writer hasn't snapped up that line in a lovely sort of Story Song. Where is Tex Ritter or Burl Ives when you need them?

It's always 'spend more time with family' rather than 'I'M SCARED IF I RUN AGAIN I'LL LOSE'....HA HAHA Do they lose their pensions if they don't get re-elected??? Probably not...

Unfortunately in RI Langevin was probably the most moderate of all. Pretty sure a Republican won't take his place even if one runs. Probably some leftist lunatic will take his place.

The federal government will let teens drive transports throughout the nation in a move it hopes will alleviate the supply chain crisis—but the initiative is being panned by critics who fear it could lead to disaster. The new apprenticeship program deviates from current law—which requires truckers crossing state lines to be at least 21 years old—by allowing 18- to 20-year-old drivers to travel beyond their home states.(Snip)But safety advocates say the program runs counter to data showing that younger drivers get in more crashes than older ones. They say it's unwise to let teenage drivers be responsible for rigs that can weigh 80,000 pounds
