    Marge finds a convict (Micheal Keaton) who has great artistic talent and she vouches for his release from prison... unfortuneatly, you can't spell ex-con without con, and her hopes are dashed. Meanwhile Homer tries to get into chiropracting only to be shut down by the chiropractor mob. This episode is alright. The only laugh out loud moment is Skinner's terrible joke telling at the mural presentation. When he tells the joke the first time, there's nothing but silence and everyone with unmoved expressions. When he tries to tell the joke you hear a gun being cocked. God I love Springfield's thin line between sanity and outright violence. The show was still in it's prime at this time.
