  1. When are we going to move to the European method and require a pin for credit card purchases like a debit card? It would certainly stop the spate wallet thefts given the limited amount of cash most people carry.

    • If they require a PIN. they’ll just use the card online or over the phone, instead of showing up in person at Target. Or anywhere else where we’ll recognize the bags. You can’t stop fraud or wallet theft.

  2. Though public health officials’ face covering mandate is certainly a right and proper policy directive, surveillance footage becomes far less useful to investigators when almost everyone dons a mask!
