Wow. There’s been some mini-excitement in Portland lately. Last Tuesday, there was a rash of car fires that claimed seven SUVs over two days.
Now the Oregonian reports that three people have been charged with arson in these cases and they don’t seem to have any ties to enviro-extremists. How do three people ranging in age from 29 to 14 decide to start torching vehicles? Just out from some pre-dawn fun? Was the Playstation broken? Couldn’t find a Wii? I can’t wait to hear the explanation for this one.
Please note that the OregonLive link in this post has a life of 14 days, after which it will slide into the Oregonian’s paid archives. This is apparently a strategy on the part of the Oregonian (and many other newspapers) to hasten their obsolescence.
