Somebody is planting hand grenades at local Goodwill stores

A customer at the Goodwill Store on Peters Creek Parkway in Winston-Salem found a grenade on one of the store's shelves and tried to purchase it. The store was evacuated and bomb squad personnel came to take it away (no word yet on whether it was live ordnance).

This is the second time this week that grenades have been found at Goodwill Stores around here. On Monday a training grenade was found amid some donated clothing at the store in Mayodan.

So... what's the trend here? Some idiot kids "goofing off"?

Or perhaps we should heed the words of one Auric Goldfinger: "Once is happenstance. Twice is coincidence. The third time it's enemy action."

(Seriously though: if this is "terrism" this has pathetic written all over it. I mean, trying to bring chaos down in a Goodwill store?!)

First, we disable their ability to buy and donate secondhand clothes...THEN, THE WHITE HOUSE.
