    I think we can blame the night time robberies on the beginning of good weather not the city we live in or the president.

    In North Dakota they have an attitude that "40 Below Keeps the Riff-Raff Out". It may work for them, but I really prefer it a tad warmer.

    To davidk_at_unc. You do know that ending a sentence with a question should be preceded by a comma, don't you?

    You do know that "won't" is a contraction for "will not" don't you?

    I live not too far from Fayetteville in a small town. I definitely wouldn't bet my life on a late night run to a "inconvenience" store for gas or anything else. I hope he survives. As 'they' say--"the freaks come out at night."

    Wouldn't stop at any of the 3 gas stations within sight of each other there, day or night, rough area. Best wishes to the injured. Good luck catching the perp, the areas full of them.- Glass Half Full

    I'm with you on that sentiment. The only reason I go on Ramsey is only on my yearly trip to the VA. Other than than, it's better to gas up elsewhere or in the daytime.
