On ABC news last night.... did anyone else catch this?

Hubby & I were watching the news last night, and squished in between the campaign blather, I heard Peter Jennings saying there is a dire shortage of truck drivers in the United States. The shortage is SO severe, that the Fed Govt is going to pay to train out of work folks to be truck drivers! I think the figure was something like a shortage of 40,000 drivers?

I looked at Hubby, and Hubby looked at me, and we simultaneously said, "You don't think... Y2K?"

Maybe we need truckers because the planes & trains won't be reliable for the supply chain? Anyone see it? Any thoughts?
