Today -100: October 13, 1913: Ireland must remain a nation

Last week -100, First Lord of the Admiralty Winston Churchill suggested excluding Northern Ireland from Home Rule. Leader of the Irish Nationalists John Redmond says no, Ireland must remain a nation.

I see the NYT is still referring to Huerta as the “provisional president” of Mexico, even though he’s no longer pretending that he intends to hold elections and happily step aside.

The Kiev ritual murder trial is going badly for the prosecution, with witness after witness (including police witnesses) showing astonishingly faulty memories, and some admitting to having been told what to say by the police. Even the anti-Semitic newspapers are making fun of the case.
