Riley's story of his experience deeply influenced a young Abraham Lincoln, who later cited it as framing his views on the horrors of slavery from a young age.

He wrote for about every magazine back then.

Yeah...and then there was than bald, mean looking fucker with the handlebar mustache and beret...werbell or some shit. I used to walk or ride my bike for quite a few miles to turn in pop bottles, and while they were tallied up--I hit the magazine rack and read everything...SOF, Mad, and others...all the while looking over the counter where the nudie mags were kept with that plain tan banner across the cover, always hoping that fucker would slip down so you could see at least a nipple. Always a good time having that 14 year old porcelain boner, peddling that damn bike home in cut-offs, no shirt and barefoot....good times.

Thanks to the internet, I sold that fucking bike.

Sorry to de-rail, back to topic.
