Today -100: February 13, 1913: Of warships, dynasties, UFOs, and bacons

Now even Cuba is sending a warship to Mexico, to protect Cuban citizens there.

Russia is preparing for the 300th anniversary of the founding of the Romanov dynasty.

The British Parliament, tired of unidentified but presumably German airships flying over their country without permission, is working on a bill to make it illegal for foreign aircraft to do so, on penalty of being shot down. Which doesn’t mean Britain actually has the capability of shooting them down.

Name of the Day -100: President pro tempore of the Senate, Sen. Augustus Octavius Bacon (D-Georgia).
