Hold on…

For those of you from Baltimore, that’s George Jones and wife Tammy Wynette. They were both country & western singers of no small repute.

Bet you haven’t heard that combination before…

“It’s not right, it’s not right what you all are doing…”

1995 L.A. riots after police acquitted at trial for whooping up on  (as in beating the c–p out of…) Rodney King.

Mr. Holder looks back and says, “Why not?!”

From the great Vanderleun:
Hey kids, ever been in a city when the army comes in? I’ve been in two of them. It’s not pretty. You won’t like it. You won’t like the “leaders and their lapdog media” that made it happen.
Zappa nailed it:

Well, you can cool it,
You can heat it . . .
‘Cause, baby, I don’t need it . . .
Take your TV tube and eat it
‘N all that phony stuff on sports
‘N all the unconfirmed reports
You know I watched that rotten box
Until my head begin to hurt
From checkin’ out the way
The newsman say they get the dirt
Before the guys on channel so-and-so

And further they assert
That any show they’ll interrupt
To bring you news if it comes up
They say that if the place blows up
They will be the first to tell,
Because the boys they got downtown
Are workin’ hard and doin’ swell,
And if anybody gets the news
Before it hits the street,
They say that no one blabs it faster
Their coverage can’t be beat

And if another woman driver
Gets machine-gunned from her seat
They’ll send some joker with a brownie
And you’ll see it all complete

So I’m watchin’ and I’m waitin’
Hopin’ for the best
Even think I’ll go to prayin’
Every time I hear ’em sayin’
That there’s no way to delay
That trouble comin’ every day
No way to delay
That trouble comin’ every day
— Frank Zappa

The six-day riot resulted in 34 deaths, 1,032 injuries, 3,438 arrests, and over $40 million in property damage. It was the most severe riot in the city’s history until the Los Angeles riots of 1992.
