    Ken,

    Don't know why I clicked on your link, but I'm glad I did. I work for a trucking company that delivers gas to about 15 of the Murphy stations in the Chattanooga, TN area. I talk to the folks in El Dorado almost every day. Made me feel even better about doing business with them. Thanks.

    Brian

    Knowing how greedy corporate America is, do you expect us to believe this tale??? (How do the anti-business liberals handle a story like this?)

    Seriously, a great story and an apparently great company!!!!

    As a side interest, is this co. unionized? My guess would be "NO".

    The refinery outside New Orleans is unionized. I am not sure about the one in Wisconsin. But I only recall one strike at the Louisiana refinery while I have been with the company and that was just after I started working 29.5 years ago.

    Well, I'm very anti-union, but this just proves that you can't judge all by the actions of a few(?)!

    Perhaps it's just like teens; all you see in the news are the ones that have really screwed up royally (alcohol, dope, sex etc), but never read about the ones that help the stranded motorist, clean up the yard of the elderly, or serve meals at a rescue mission.

    The "bad" gets the press while the "good" are mostly ignored!!

    Again, I must say that it must be a great company, and you're privileged to be a part of it!

    Ken:

    My home computer is busted, and this one at work doesn't have sound in its video.
    Do you have a non-video link for this story ?
    thanks.
