    A friend was hit in Fayetteville just a few weeks ago while out jogging in the morning, and the driver didn't stop for that either. He had to have brain surgery to keep him alive, and they still don't know if he will ever fully recover. I can't believe there are so many people in this area that are that cold hearted to do this and keep going. Guess we see what our society is becoming.
