Man Uses CB Radio To Peddle XXX Movies To Truckers
<snip>

MOUNT COMFORT, Ind. -- Hancock County officials are trying to stop a man from selling pornographic movies to truckers at the Mount Comfort Road exit off I-70.

Joe Byrer, 40, advertises his wares over his CB radio, telling other motorists on Channel 19 that he's offering X-rated flicks at the price of three for $20.

He then parks his red Chevy pickup along a dead-end road adjacent to the Pilot Travel Center and waits for customers.

"That is not a permitted use for that property," said Mike Dale, Hancock County's chief zoning enforcement officer.

Byrer's preferred spot for selling his merchandise is less than a mile from Mount Comfort Elementary School and Mount Comfort United Methodist Church.

2. Near an elementary school?
He could at least TRIPLE profits by selling outside a high school!

4. Truck stops the secret sin palace of Americana
At least that was what I was told by some truckers I used to work with at a lighter-than-a-truckload shipping company I worked at in college. Most of these guys had left long hauling for a "regular shift" job, that meant leaving Richmond at ~9 PM and driving round trip to Charlotte or Baltimore or sometimes Atlanta. They were all white as a sheet (even the black guys) as they were creatures of the night.

They all told me about the really freaky and strange s**t that goes on in and around truckstops-the big ones. One of them told me about a particularly nasty stop near Philly (I think it was) that was infamous for the "anything you want" variety of sex drugs and well....anything you want-also if you weren't familiar with getting in and out of it you could easily get lost and get highjacked.

I don't think that most truckers partake in that but it is apparently readily available and they all know which channels to switch to in order to listen in and/or partake.

6. Just How Much Does Ashcroft Charge For A Tax Number?
For a pick-up truck parked along a dead-end road along a lonely Interstate Highway in Indiana?
