In case you were under the impression that things were better in the olden days, a perusing of the front page of the Cincinnati Enquirer from 100 years ago today will change your mind.

Just this one page covers blacklisted Americans, prisoners of war, immigration and political refuge, escaped convicts, three murder/suicides, drug overdose, shootings at the Mexican boarder, war, a train wreck, a crazed man on the loose who believed he must die in order to bring a message to the Almighty, and an indigent father sentenced to the workhouse.
