Terrorism in Downtown Manhattan
In 1898 we falsely entered a war with Spain, mostly egged on by Cubans living in this country and the "yellow journalism" of a press corps eager for war. In 1975, downtown Manhattan, at Fraunces Tavern, Puerto Rican terrorists struck, killing and injuring many. For the slow at subtraction, that is seventy-eight years later.
