    Yeah, and "about 20 minutes" is probably a very conservative estimate.

    There is an ongoing police investigation into the accident. Several news agencies have reported this as a ‘hit and run.’ Bishop Cook did leave the scene initially, but returned after about 20 minutes to take responsibility for her actions.


    So, it was a hit-and-run-pause-return. I wonder if she realized during that 20 minutes that she would be found out anyway.

    Why would an atheist be lost in prayer?

  • Reverse Good Samaritan: first female bishop of Maryland Episcopaleans hit and run

    Heather Cook, the first female bishop of the Episcopal Church in Maryland, has been suspended following a hit-and-run accident on Saturday in which she reportedly hit a bicyclist on Roland Avenue. The bicyclist, Thomas Palermo, later died at the hospital.

    ...

    Apparently, this was not Bishop Cook’s first run-in with the law. According to a report from the Baltimore Brew, Heather E. Cook had been arrested in September 2010, before being named a bishop, on drinking, driving and drug charges:
    Looks like another glass ceiling was shattered.
