There was no word on the condition of the driver.

    I don't see anything wrong with the Market House standing in the center of the traffic circle in Fayetteville.
    That is, unless you are one of those drivers that can only drive from point A to point B but it has to be in a straight line.

    I'm happy to see that WRAL got the history of the building correct. Usually anything dealing with the Market House suggests that it was once a slave market. It wasn't.
