Today -100: June 16, 1917: Of anarchists and conscription


Emma Goldman and Alexander Berkman are arrested by the feds at the oxymoronic “anarchist headquarters” for conspiring to “aid, counsel, and induce” men not to register for the draft.

Headline of the Day -100:

The NYT now regularly uses loaded terms like slackers and shirkers and  sedition and patriotic (and unpatriotic) in its news reporting.

Not sure that phrase fits the definition of "oxymoronic" --- no....no, no sure that it doesn't at all. But ok, there might be a gist there - it just needs to be a gist with some clarity.
