1907_0816_christ_kid Above, a gruesome story from Stanford is Page 1 news ... Below, a cross-section of what The Times often called "Life's Seamy Side" ... The print isn't terribly legible, but reading the stories is worth the effort. Pay special attention to the engineer who calls a balloon ascension in the Arctic a total fraud ... I'm particularly fond of the story about the "Christ Kid," a criminal who posed as a preacher to the homeless when the police were looking for him.
