Today -100: April 14, 1913: Of assassination attempts, canters, and butts

An anarchist shoots at Spain’s King Alfonso, as was the custom. Three shots, all missed. Spanish anarchists were notoriously crappy shots, probably. The king rode back to his palace on a horse that had been wounded by one of the shots, so he was clearly a douche.

Headline of the Day -100: “BRYAN'S HORSE ARRIVES.; Secretary Plans Canters in Capital.” That’s what was wrong with Hillary Clinton: she never cantered in the capital.

Butt Headline of the Day -100: “TAFT PRAISES MAJOR BUTT.” (Titanic 1 year anniversary).

Wasn't Taft himself a major butt?
