    One of the main reasons I got my NC Concealed Handgun Permit was because I was working as a Night Auditor at a hotel in Washington... I would suggest that any other person who works a late-night shift do the same...

    "Held up" IS an accepted, past-tense, phrasal verb.

    So was it held up or was there a holdup? It's a noun. Or maybe it was held up by some very strong people? Just sayin'...write on WITN...you're still first for news. And what's the latest on Witney the Hobo?

      Do crimminals have card reading machines now? Not many people carry cash anymore. Maybe if I carry only the Discover card, they'll leave me alone?
