Three Portland men were stabbed Friday after they confronted a man who was spouting anti-Muslim rhetoric at two young women on a MAX train.

Two of the men died.

Rick Best was a U.S. Army veteran and City of Portland employee. Taliesin Namkai-Meche had recently graduated from Reed College and just started working with a local consulting firm. The third man, Micah David-Cole Fletcher, is a Madison High School graduate and Portland State student. He was released from the hospital Monday.

We dedicate much of our Tuesday show to talking about the attacks and the aftermath.
