Good morning, Raleigh. Still reporting from the road. Wrapping a long weekend in Spruce Pine. It's our annual trip to see the leaves. Destinations vary, based on Mrs. Blogger's lodging preferences. We happened upon two incidents on the trip, a fatal MVA in Forsyth County and a medical airlift in Avery County. Back to the "big city" today. Raleigh, where Barney Fife goes to party.

$997 BOND? For running that fast and impaired throught an accident scene, hitting and injuring 2 firefighters and her bond was set at $997.00? WOW Where is the legal system at?

Bail is a monetary amount designed to ensure that the charged person appears in court, as I understand the concept, versus a monetary penalty commensurate with the severity of the charges. But then again, I am neither a lawyer nor play one on television.
