I have been very lax in the blog posting department recently. I have been exceedingly busy, or perhaps Santa…
However this does not mean that the internet here & elsewhere is not still brilliant.
Cases in point:
In case you were not wondering & had therefore not clicked the link, the image at the top of this post is from If Charlie Parker Was a Gunslinger, There’d Be a Whole Lot of Dead Copycats which is reliably graphic as far as weblogs go. the picture is the following:
Mayor Destroys Last of Slot Machines.
New York — A modern St. George conquering a moral dragon, Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia of New York City has the personal satisfaction of destroying some of the 2000 slot machines which were loaded on a municipal barge, towed out to sea, and dumped. They are believed to have been the last machines in the city. The money remaining in the machines at the time of confiscation will be turned over to the police pension fund. Watching the Mayor are Police Commissioner Lewis J. Valentine and State Senator Joseph Esquirol, sponsor of a bill outlawing the evil. (1934)
A truly beautiful moment in the history of self-righteousness.
