An incredible story out of Charlotte, North Carolina, where a Taco Bell was robbed -- not of money, but of food! Who knew that Taco Bell even served edible items?

A car with three men had pulled up to the drive-thru window when one of the men pulled out a weapon and demanded food from the frightened and confused order taker. It's not every day that someone is so desperate for Soft Tacos and Cinnamon Twists.

The robbers ultimately got only a few fried apple pies for their trouble -- and that's not the only good news. No one was injured in the incident, including the scofflaws, who were spared from having to eat a tortilla slathered with larded beans and high-fructose hot sauce.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
