Won't You Post Bail Mark Hansen
Won't You Post Bail?
I moan the whole night long
I'll go to AA Honey
I'll sober up.
I know that I've done you wrong.
Remember those many days that I drove so drunk
While texting like a cool young teen?
Yes I know that I'm to blame
Ain't that a shame?
Mark Hansen, won't you please post bail.

Former Episcopal priest ponies up $250,000 to start the bonding process

The ever changing story surrounding disgraced Episcopal Bishop Heather Cook (Maryland suffragan) has taken yet another turn. With the help of her "steady companion," she has been able to do the seemingly impossible and have a $2.5 million cash bond posted to spring herself from a Baltimore jail. However her newly-found freedom comes with a hefty price tag ... $35,000 by check and a signed promissory note for $215,000 payable at $1,000 a month for 18 years (215 months), but with few restrictions. She is to surrender her temporary Maryland driver's license and promise not to drive. She is not on any sort of "pretrial supervision."
That 'super special treatment' involved allowing a driver to drive into the off-limits sally port area to pick up his friend away from the public and media. This was supposedly arranged by Bishop Cook's attorney to protect her from prying eyes and media scrutiny.
