Saturday Morning Post.

Saturday Morning Post.

October 21. In 1774, the word LIBERTY appeared on a colonial flag in Taunton, MA, in defiance of British rule. In 1849, the first tattooed man, James O’Donnell, was put on exhibition at the Franklin Theatre in NYC. In 1858, the Can-Can was performed for the first time in Paris. In 1917, the first US soldier entered combat in WW1 in Nancy, France. In 1918, Margaret Owen set a typing speed record of 170 wpm (I could have challenged her in my legal secretary days). In 1921, President Harding spoke out against lynching. In 1925, 29,620 people were fined for alcohol violations. In 1945, women in France were allowed to vote for the first time.  In 1994, North Korea and the US signed an agreement requiring North Korea to halt its nuclear program (hahaha). Happy Birthday, Samuel Coleridge, Dizzy Gillespie, Ursula LeGuin, Carrie Fisher, Elvin Bishop. It’s International Day of the Nacho. Mission: Defy for the sake of liberty (and let’s not forget: 94% of what POTUS says is a lie.)
