Today -100: August 3, 1916: Of golf and polio, hangings, and peace meetings

New York City polio death toll = 937. But now, polio has GONE TOO FAR.

Roger Casement is hanged. The British are now claiming as a reason his death sentence wasn’t commuted that when he was recruiting among Irish POWs, some of those who didn’t cooperate were mistreated by their German guards and two were killed. The timing of this story is kind of suspicious, the public version of the sliming of his reputation based on his sex life that they’ve been doing behind the scenes.

Headline of the Day -100:

That word, “peace,” I do not think it means what you think it means.
