      I agree with you about Pitt County. Does any one want to buy a cheap townhouse.... I hate living in Greenville because of the crime.. It is getting so bad here. Not a place I would recommend. I had a fender bender in a parken lot and it took the police 1 1/2 hours to get from one side of town to the other.... Thank God no one was hurt. Hope Phat Boi is ok and will recover.
