Today -100: April 18, 1921: Oh, just your basic thuggery

The IRA kills a woman, its first. The body of Kitty MacCarron, a farmer, is left with the usual note about spies and informers but no clarity about what, if anything, she actually did.

It seems that one of the things Poet-Aviator Gabriele d’Annunzio did before he left Fiume was to rewrite the city’s divorce code and then use it to get a divorce. He has now remarried, to a much younger pianist.

More street fights between Socialists and Fascists in Italy. A primary fascist tactic for a while has been attacking buildings – labor and party headquarters, newspaper offices, etc. – going after the infrastructure of the Left. In Fiume, Fascists attack a street car with hand grenade(s). I was going to remark that none of the recent stories mention anyone being arrested, but in this case one of the attackers is turned over to the Italian carabineers. Who let him go.
