Today -100: December 14, 1915: Of wreaked spite, and waiting for a zeppelin

Headline of the Day -100: 

The NYT says Pancho Villa has reverted to his bandit ways, extorting foreign-owned stores in Chihuahua.

You know, “wreaks spite” is a phrase you just don’t hear that often these days. Use it in a sentence today.

Recalled German military attach√© Franz von Papen is heading to Mexico rather than home. That’s not worrying at all.

Some German-language newspapers in the US are claiming that unrest in India is being stirred up by Japan (not Germany), while the New Yorker Staats-Zeitung quotes an unnamed Afghan khan as saying that Afghanistan will rise up when signaled by the sight of a zeppelin.
