Heard this morning on the Dick Purtan radio show here in Detroit: A farmer was sitting on his porch one afternoon, when a State Highway Truck pulled up along side the road in front of his property. The driver got out of the truck, walked to the grassy area next to the road, dug a hole, then got back into the truck. A few minutes later a passenger in the truck got out, walked to the hole, proceeded to fill it back in, and then returned to the truck. The driver then moved the truck 50 feet up the road, and the process repeated itself. This went on for the entire stretch of road in front of the farmer's house. The farmer, who was already a bit upset about the poor quality of the road, couldn't believe his eyes. He stormed down to the truck, pounded on the window, and demanded to know what was going on. The driver replied, "We're part of a highway beautification project, but the guy who plants the trees called in sick."
