Today -100: December 3, 1911: Of tame affairs and carriers

Headline of the Day -100: “Capture of Nanking Was a Tame Affair.” Everyone’s a critic.

Mary Mallon, aka “Typhoid Mary,” sues the NYC Health Dept for $50,000 for holding her in isolation for three years (until last year), claiming she never had typhoid fever – which is true, she was a carrier – and that she has been unable to follow her trade as a cook since her release.
