Today -100: February 21, 1920: Of eclairs, explorers, and archangels


Headline of the Day -100: 


I had a dream once in which I was attacked by an eclair. Sooooo chocolate.

Robert Peary, the explorer who in 1909 was the first to reach the North Pole, or so he claimed, dies at 63.

The Soviets capture Archangel.

After a cop is killed in Dublin, a raid is carried out, with tanks and everything, and a curfew is ordered.

A naturalized Italian-American in Indiana, Frank Pedroni, got into an argument with a man who, in the course of a heated discussion of Austro-Italian disagreements, said “To hell with the United States.” So Pedroni shot him dead. He is acquitted of murder, the jury taking two minutes.
