    why do we glorify pirates? They were really bad guys, if they were around today they would put the little Greenville thugs to shame.

    Don't worry citizens of Greenville, this will be another great chance for The Big Time Police department of greenville, to give another certain classification of people citations. Kinda gives them a chance to even out the numbers.....If you know what I mean..... Always easy to give someone a ticket that doesn't run away

      You must be from Chapel Hell...the land where no one does ANYTHING WRONG, yet they probably do more drinking and partying than any other college I've been to.
