Today -100: August 20, 1918: Of waning red power, cheap drugs, u-boat dangers, and Hinky Dinky Parley Voo


Headline of the Day -100: 


Two “German agents” are arrested for selling drugs “at surprisingly low prices” to soldiers in an obvious plot to “debauch” them.

Woodrow Wilson has been on vacation in Manchester, Massachusetts, with the sea and the golf and whatnot. He’s been guarded by torpedo boats and submarine chasers just in case a u-boat tries to assassinate him, which is totally a thing that could really happen.

Gen. Pershing orders soldiers not to fuck French prostitutes. (Spoiler Alert: American soldiers will totally fuck French prostitutes.)
