On This Day

I’m sure you were all looking forward to this weeks cop smack talking, but today is a holiday, and in honor of the holiday I decided to play a little game called, “on this day”


Knowing many of my readers, I know with the exception of the Republicans you are all pretty intelligent people. You most likely already know the story behind penicillin. How Alexander Fleming accidentally dropped some mold on to a tray of bacteria, discovering this wonderful antibiotic. Well my friends, on this day in 1929, Alexander Fleming presented that discovery to the world. So remember, depending on how you spend your Valentine this year and who you spend it with, you can thank Alexander and his penicillin for curing that syphilis you pick up.

On an interesting side note; we all know of the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre, where Al Capone’s gunmen murdered seven members of rival George Moran’s gang… Also on this day in 1929.


Happy Valentine’s Day
