    World War 1. 100 years ago right now

    An NYPD patrolman who was originally born in Germany is suspended for refusing to put Red Cross placards on doorknobs during his patrol. The NYPD will add 12 women police officers to the current 5. They’ll have guns and badges and everything. I don’t know if this is the first time women cops are given guns.

    Knights always seems to be in the right position;. Anticipating the puck bounces, and anticipating receiving a pass. They've got it all going!

    GERMAN GOVERNMENT is now looting houses! Germany will seize 3 million suits of clothes from anyone who has more than one, to supply war workers who are presently being supplied with paper clothes, which are proving less than satisfactory. Evening clothes and smoking jackets are exempt. The military will also be inspecting household fittings like doorknobs and sinks for copper, nickel, aluminum, etc that might be seized.

    will Lyon County Nevada shut down its legal brothels? to a vote!

    yep. And the June 12th vote is just an advisory for the county to decide on putting it on the November ballot. I think newcomers/visitors come here from other states and say to the big shots when on their tours...... 'oh my gosh, you have sanctioned brothels? How untoward".! Those visitors likely don't know the rules they have to abide by, and are selectively ignorant about illicit prostitution, (or worse, trafficking), going on in their home city.

    1. For the second time in the 3-day history of US air mail, a plane fails to make its appointed rounds. Since mechanical difficulties forced it down, keeping it from making its connection, the plane doing the Philadelphia-NY leg takes off with just 4½ pounds of mail. Another air mail plane, leaving from DC, is forced to land at the Philadelphia Country Club, scattering people on the field and hitting a fence, because the pilot ran out of fuel after getting really lost (using road maps is turning out to be unsatisfactory). 2. A German government commission into the declining birth rate recommends punishing people who haven’t married by 21 and couples who haven’t produced children.
  10. Once I was helping with a volunteer project and we had to clean up the banks of Coyote Creek in San Jose. I have never seen so many plastic bottles. Thousands LITTERED along the creek bank. Coyote Creek empties into the southern most part of San Francisco bay.

    Dennis Hof is a gasbag/ jerk. Storey county, (also near Reno) still has the Mustang ranch.
