Letter: Canadian Tour Buses should be called - Motor Coaches

Comments re photo 46615 Tour bus really from Montgomery - Not Montreal

I gotta tell you - you need not identify me - that TOUR **** prefers that those vehicles be called 'motor coaches' not buses. - Unidentified
Thanks, Unidentified : We promise to do better.

But honestly, even one of America's top motor coach pilots, T.J. Shamberger, himself, of AUM, Alabama, was not offended he was asked if he were driving 'A Canadian Tour Bus.' Heck, I even call Junior Stotts' little 2002 Prevost a "Canadian Tour Bus."

Junior's bus is licensed in Adair County, but it was built in Canada. And I believe that if a preferred parking space for Canadian Tour Buses were painted off on the Square, he might be persuaded to park it there, at least long enough to record the historic moment with a cell phone camera.

I guess its owing to whichever higher authority one looks to: Somerset or Sparksville: The political correctness dictated by Somerset, or the one true path, the orthodoxy of following the original King James version of the Great Wooded South Lexicon. I kind of lean to the latter. -EW
