Lou DeJoy of One Man’s Desiring 8-24-20

So I’m watching Louis DeJoy testify in front of the House Oversight Committee. It was this morning, but I’m watching the recording of it.

Gerry Connolly (D-VA) spoke about the getting a fleet of vehicles that won’t explode.

Won’t explode? What does that mean? Postal trucks are exploding?

Turns out, they are!

A Jalopnik article by Erin Marquis entitled Post Office Trucks Are Bursting Into Flames And No One Really Knows Why–a title so amazing, it’s a wonder it’s not clickbait–states that more than 400 postal vehicles have exploded just the past six years.

This is the photo in the Jalopnik article (image originally from WUSA9)

The conclusion is that the trucks are just old, but what?!

Also this video is embedded there and here. The truck explodes. I’ve embedded it to start at 74 seconds in, so you have a few seconds till the explosion. You don’t have to wait so long and hunt.

Explosion is at 78 seconds. This video starts at 74 seconds. You’re welcome.

That’s all I got for now. I’m going back to watch more now.
