    I guess they consider the barrieers part of the courthouse. Avenger you should audit the gov't. They need someone as literal as you to get them working again. No more saying it depends on how the word "is" is used.

    WRAL - After reading your article the lady didn't crash into the courthouse just barriers outside of the building. The headline "Woman crashes car into Cumberland County Courthouse" is misleading.
