John Lockwood was conducting research at the Library of Congress and
came across an intriguing Page 2 headline in the Nov. 2, XXXX edition of The Washington Post: “Arctic
Ocean Getting Warm; Seals Vanish and Icebergs Melt.”
The article in question was written before Al Gore became famous for Global Warming. In
fact, the article in question was written before Al Gore was even
Vice-President. The kicker?
It was dated November 2, 1922!
Sad to say, but the East Coast is still here.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
