Dangerous Amazon Delivery Driver

On Thursday my wife I were returning from New Jersey via the Betsy Ross Bridge. When we were on the off ramp to Richmond St, a white van approached our rear at a high rate of speed with his high beams on. He proceeded to tail gate our car very closely, down the ramp. When I stopped for the stop sign, he blasted his horn at me. When I got on Richmond Street he continued to tail gate me, so I pulled over to the curb. He flew by me and entered the Amazon facility and parked. I asked a worker if there was a supervisor available that I could report the incident to. A fellow who claimed to be a supervisor, listened to my complaint, but I don't think it was going anywhere because he smiled the whole time I was telling him of the driver's rude and reckless actions. Warning! Be very careful of the Amazon Drivers, some of them shouldn't even be allowed on the road.

Bridesburg Historical Society shared a post.

Reply by Mike Finn: BHS doesn't have any pictures from that decade. Our members night have family pictures to share. The only source I can think of would be The Bridesburg Bulletin but their files might not be digitized.

Memorial Day, Monday May 28, 2018 In Flander...

Memorial Day, Monday May 28, 2018 In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/In_Flanders_Fields

    In Flanders Fields - Wikipedia
    " In Flanders Fields" is a war poem in the form of a rondeau, written during the First World War by Canadian physician Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae. He was inspired to write it on May 3, 1915, after presiding over the funeral of friend and fellow soldier Lieutenant Alexis Helmer, who died in the Second Battle of Ypres.
