Thanks for your reply, Richard.

My connection to James Atlee Phillips actually began with his son Shawn. My interest in Shawn Phillips lead me into reading the Joe Gall series that James Atlee Phillips penned under the name Philip Atlee.

I'm enjoying the series and now I'm looking for other James Atlee Phillips stories. Hence my interest in The Big Rig.

I googled "The Nation's Business" and found "Nation's Business" mag, by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. I didn't figure they were the same...but now I think I'll pursue that line.

THANKS for the recommendation, Richard.
