Pistol-packing Teacher


I'm very proud this incident is part of my home state's history.

From The New York Times for January 12, 1923.

Cool post Paul, I wonder if Miss Mabel ever got her bag back.
Or, Did she have to make like Papa and get a brand new bag! LOL

Was the teacher lenient afterwards when a student told her "my dog ate my homework"? smile

So, after robbing the liqueur store the night before she didn't have time go get back home and grade the papers. When she mistakenly took the wrong bag to school and the students saw the hooch and gun she concocted this most unlikely story.

She was always "bagged" I guess. I prefer the cheap drunk women I know like Patty and my wife (and ??? Shhhhh zipper) I don't need one drinking all my liquor or smoking or snorting all of my stash. grrr

Just keep in mind there is a big difference between being a cheap drunk and just being cheap.
