A Reading of Historic Newspapers in the Golden Age of Yellow Journalism
The Fall from Grace and Tragic Murder of the Rev. Gaylord V. Saunders
This episode tells the sordid tale of a Methodist minister suffering from a midlife crisis and in losing his faith falls into the path of sin and degradation. It gets so bad, that his beleaguered wife offers a young man a $10 bill to find someone to kill her husband before he kills her. This was in 1934, so adujsted for inflation, that comes to $177.71 in 2016 dollars.
