Today -100: May 5, 1910: Taft’s non-jobs

In a speech in St Louis, President Taft comments that he was probably the only man in public life who would admit never having had any farming experience.

Taft may be expelled from the steam shovelers’ union (an honorary membership, he didn’t have any experience, um, shoveling steam I guess, either) for attending a baseball game which was under boycott because the new Cleveland ball park was built with non-union labor.
