    FedEx Said to Be in Talks on $5 Billion of Boeing 767 Planes - Bloomberg

    FedEx Corp., the only current commercial customer for Boeing Co.’s 767 cargo jet, is in talks to acquire at least 25 more of the twin-engine freighters, two people familiar with the matter said.

    The shipping company’s directors met in the Seattle area over the weekend, where the deal was on the agenda, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the details are private. The planes’ list value would be about $5 billion, one of the people said, before the customary discounts.

    Oh no. Maybe I bought them for you. Somebody has to pay the bills and all the Express money goes to bloated envelope carriers.

    I don't talk bad about food stamp recipients. I had them for a time and was grateful for them after I choked down some unwarranted pride.

    There's nothing wrong with accepting help when you need it its just sad that this is the reality for many drivers while FedEx is talking about spending tens of billions of dollars.

    True. Walmart and FedEx are heavy double dippers in public aid.
