Happy Friday from Washington, where President Trump's decision to send federal law enforcement to help quell the violence in some cities apparently set Democrats' hair on fire. Fred Lucas reports. What goes on in Portland, Oregon? Lora Ries has answers. On the podcast, veteran Hong Kong watcher Mike Gonzalez assesses China's suppression of freedom there. Plus: two takes on the meaning of the turmoil in America's cities; the U.S. kicks China out of Houston; and vandals aren't sparing churches. On this date in 1915, more than 800 drown when the steamer Eastland capsizes in the Chicago River on the way to a picnic. Enjoy the weekend.
