She attempted to ask the congressman who was speaking a followup question to his statement. She asked “How does privatizing it make it more efficient?”
It was not a rude question. She was arrested.
There is footage of the officer escorting her out. When the woman, a former radio interviewer/personality, asked him to not touch her. He said she was under arrest. And when she asked “Why am I being arrested?” He didn’t have an answer.
This makes me absolutely terrified.
What are we coming to that we can’t have civil discourse with our elected officials?
And why are they dodging all the questions?
“When you run with the Doctor, it feels like it will never end. But however hard you try, you can’t run forever. Everybody knows that everybody dies, and nobody knows it like the Doctor. But I do think that all the skies of all the worlds might just turn dark if he ever, for one moment, accepts it.”
So, I rewatched Forest of Dead recently, and this quote struck me as interesting. I love that River said she was running with the Doctor and that she cannot run forever. The reason that I love this so much is because of the Doctor recently saying how he has been running. I cannot even express my love for this and the way that Steven Moffat pulls things togeher. Eternal love.
