Artful dodgers

Last night the boy and I started watching "Oliver!", so this morning it seemed altogether fitting that the Twin Falls paper is running a series about some of the unheralded heroes of the criminal justice system: bail bondsmen. It features one of my favorite bond agents, Jack Green, and one of my favorite all-around characters, Charlie Legg:

"Most of our clients who pawned, we've bonded, so we had an established relationship," (Jennifer Legg) said.

My friend and fellow P.D. Jack Meredith (now P.D.'ing in Harrisburg, PA) once noted that even Charlie Legg's name is like something out of Charles Dickens.
