FIPS DAILY ALMANAC: Friday, March 23, 2012

 

cartoon by Steven WeinbergRise and shine FIPS'ters, and welcome to your day! In local news, a cute-as-all-hell baby giraffe was just been born at the Bronx zoo, and in celeb goss, Whitney's Houston has been ruled an accidental drowning (but there was absolutely cocaine in her system).

ON THIS DAY IN BK HISTORY (1893):

Oh this is one juicy, FIPS'ters. So a married woman residing at 178 Rutledge Street was caught between a husband and a lover, both doctors (the lady has good taste). So she runs off with the other man, deserting her husband and two children. Although this sounds like just another day for any of us, in 1893 this was front page news. This harlot left behind "a deserted husband and four WORSE THAN MOTHERLESS children." Who does the husband blame? His bitchy mother-in-law: "That woman has surrounded me for years," he says. The "other doctor's" wife came to Brooklyn looking for her husband and calamity ensued. My favorite line, however, was this: "As usually happens, the neighbors are very much interested in this case and as doesn't usually happen, they are very shy about talking."
