56. We don't have too many Walmarts out here, thankfully.

But yes, there are check cashing places. Point is, though, that anyone reduced to that kind of poverty is unlikely to be protecting his wallet with a gun. So, I find it hard to imagine anyone doing so, in this day and age, when the only time one is vulnerable is at an ATM, which has cameras and lights and hopefully, users who keep their antennae up. Bottom line, to get mugged, you've really got to work on it.
Think about it. If you were a robber, who would you rob? A poor guy who just cashed his measly paycheck and might fight you to the death, because he has kids to feed, or a convenience store with a nice fat cash register?
