Today -100: December 21, 1915: Of collections, exiles, and shaken by vice


The Carranza government of Mexico bans churches from taking up collections.

It is also negotiating a peace with Pancho Villa’s followers that would see the latter given amnesty and brought into the Carranza army to fight Zapata. Villa would go into exile in the US.

Oh, elsewhere the paper says Villa is not going into exile after all, but he has split with his generals who are negotiating with Carranza, calling them thieves, traitors, and quitters.

Headline of the Day -100: 

The 1915 version of binge-watching The Wire.
