The Slice

This date in Slice history (1997)

There was trouble in Bonners Ferry.

Kelley Standal, 12, tried to convince her little brother that dinosaurs did not exist at the same time as cavemen.

But 7-year-old James Standal wasn't buying it. And to make his case, he cited what he regarded as an irrefutable authority, “The Flintstones.”

“Don't you get it, Kelley?” he blurted. “Fred took Dino for a walk!”
