Rioting In Portland,Again   The Newsy You: News of Today

Started Aug-5 by kizmet1; 16886 views.

I think the most memorable SImpsons episode I can think of is the one called "Radio Bart". It clearly parodies the October 1987 rescue of Baby Jessica McClure in Midland, TX. Bart lowers a radio down an abandoned well. Then he calls for help into a nearby transmitter as he watches from a hidden vantage point as some innocent person walks by.

Suddenly the "rescue" of the kid in the well becomes a media 3 ring circus.

I missed the well episode.

It's probably floating around various corners of the web to this day.

Why did they topple Lincoln?
He is afraid of losing next month.

I don’t know. Lincoln was anti racism and slavery. Doesn’t make sense.

Right. Makes me wonder if the rioters were never practicing Jews, Christians or anything else of a well known worldwide religion, unless...?
