and marking the anniversary of the installation of the first radio in the White House by President Harding, in 1922. WGH was president from 1921 to 1923, and at the time was discredited for scandals, lots of them arising out of conflicts and collusion of his cabinet members, including in selling alcohol during Prohibition....and the notorious Teapot Dome scandal...but now seen in a more positive light, even as a bit of a progressive, for releasing Eugene Debs from prison, promoting anti-lynching laws, bringing in the 8-hour workday.

and marking the anniversary of the formation, on this date in 1950, of the Stasi. Operating for 39 years until the Wende shut down their Leipzig operations, the East German secret police collected records during this time equivalent to the prior entire recorded German history. end to end the records are 180 km long. Corrosively for German society, the Stasi forced IM (information mitelbeiters), unofficial collaborators, to report on friends and family in order to avoid being persecuted and imprisoned themselves. These tracks, about the German divide and/or secret police, go out to people victimized by secret police who continue to operate in many countries today.
