From Statista: “In addition to the humanitarian catastrophe, the war in Ukraine has also triggered an inflation crisis that is affecting people all over the world. As this infographic based on the latest OECD Economic Outlook shows, the impact of rising consumer prices is being especially felt in Europe and countries neighboring Ukraine. For Lithuania, OECD analysts project an inflation rate of 15.6 percent for 2022 – compared to the previous forecast from December 2021, this is an increase of 12.4 percentage points.”
Notably: The city of Munich, one of the great capitals of beer, was founded by Henry the Lion on this date in 1158, though it was not to Robert Graves’s taste. “Munich,” he wrote in Goodbye to All That, his very good autobiography, “we found sinister–disgusting fumes of beer and cigar smoke, and intense sounds of eating in restaurants.” It is also Donald Trump’s birthday. The Resentful Rage was born on this date in 1946 in New York. He is 76. He was the 45th president, “and whilst he enjoyed the vain pomp of triumph,” Edward Gibbon wrote of a different emperor, “he neglected to secure the means of victory.” It is also Flag Day in the United States, and it is Yasmine Bleeth’s birthday (54). I wouldn’t normally mention the birthday of a Baywatch and Nash Bridges star, but how often does one get to name-drop a starlet’s yaz? We went to school together (at the UN school). She was a grade below mine. Untouchable even then. (Dustin Hoffman’s daughter was two floors below, in grade school.)

CHICAGO, Jan. 20–In the trial of Inga Hanson, charged with trying to defraud a street car company through alleged injuries, Mrs. White, a nurse, testified: “For a month Inga Hanson did not eat a mouthful of food, so far as I know.” “If she took no solid
Or liquid food, upon what did she live?” asked Special Counsel Franklin B. Hussey. “The odor of roses,” replied Mrs. White.” “She would crush them in her hand and sniff their perfume for minutes at a time. Her bed was covered constantly with rose leaves, out of which she had crushed and inhaled the fragrance. She kept roses in her room always. She said the fragrance strengthened her.
I know she seemed wonderfully braced up after breathing the odor.”
–From the full, Page 1 article, “Lived on Perfume and Roses,” in The New York Times, Jan. 21, 1905.
