   JOKE    THOUGHT    OPINION
We just returned from a trip, and our flight home made it into today’s edition of the Joke of the Day!


"It is nobler to declare oneself wrong than to insist on being right - especially when one is right."

~Friedrich Nietzsche (1844 - 1900), Thus Spoke Zarathustra


   THIS WEEK'S POLL
The U.S. House has passed legislation that bans states from requiring that foods containing genetically modified organisms (GMO’s) be labeled. 3 states currently have GMO label requirements. Supporters of the measure say GMO foods are safe and the labeling could frighten consumers. Opponents say that consumers should be able to know what is in their food.  Should states be banned from requiring GMO labeling?



A Wyoming legislative committee is drafting a bill that would keep all college student emails private, including those concerning student governments. Currently, all 50 states say that emails on university and college accounts are public record. Wyoming would be the first state to change that, if the bill becomes law.   Should college student emails be public record or kept private?





   LAST WEEK'S RESULTS
(WyomingNetwork does NOT represent this as a scientific poll.)
Federal regulations currently set a minimum age of 21 for commercial interstate truck drivers. Congress is proposing lowering that to 18. Opponents say drivers between 18 and 20 have higher accident rates than other age groups. Supporters say the change is needed because of a shortage of truck drivers.   Should the minimum age for commercial truck drivers be lowered to 18?

Yes, make the minimum age 18
8.2%

No, keep the minimum age at 21
91.8%

Currently, the trailers on semi-trucks are limited to 28 feet in length. Congress is considering increasing that to 33 feet. Opponents say that would make a truck pulling a double trailer 84 feet long. They say it would create a safety risk, including increasing stopping distances and putting too much weight on bridges and roads. Supporters say the extra space would eliminate six million trips and over a billion miles driven, and reduce carbon emissions by four billion pounds annually.  Should truck trailers be extended from 28 feet to 33 feet?

Yes, make the truck trailers longer
21.1%

No, don’t make the trailers longer
78.9%
