More Weird News from 1910

MEN ARE NOT BORN EQUAL, SAYS JUDGE

"Majority Has Been Able to Escape Rule of Brainier Minority."

-----
Judge Tayler
CLEVELAND, Ohio, Feb 23 --"There is more democracy wrapped up in a musket than in all the oratorical and academical platitudes ever spoken," was the address at Trinity cathedral yesterday by Judge Robert W. Tayler of the United States court. The judge declared that as men are not born equal, intellectually or physically, the majority has been enabled to escape the rule of the brainier minority only by the development of firearms.

(The Evening Chronical, Spokane, Washington February 23, 1910)

---Once again, I have to say that history is weirder than fiction. And it is worth noting that guns prevent feminine fainting. I had no idea.
