Our elections have been over for a couple of days, however I found that not the case 100 years ago. In the November 4, 1910
issue of "The Call" from San Francisco, the governor race was heated with the report of a rally of 7,000 people. "Johnson Hurls Lie Direct in Teeth of Detractors and Lays Bare True Meaning of Battle"
is one of the sub-headlines. It seems that politics has not changed...
But the deceit and lies does not stop in the political arena. A man traded a mule under the guise of a "shaved tail" horse. Afterward he began to laugh about it, to the point he could not stop laughing. This continued for hours to which a physician was called in. Finally after 12 hours of laughing, they resorted to electric shock therapy which did stop the laughter. This may truly be a case of who really got the last laugh in this deal!! ~The Traveler
