Question of the Day

Yesterday we asked: What was the key ingredient in Mrs. Winslow’s Soothing Syrup and other infant “quieteners.”

Answer: All kinds of opium. Mrs. Winslow’s Soothing Syrup was a mixture of morphine and alcohol, and although it was later denounced as the “baby killer,” it sure had its fans.

Congrats to Dan Tynan, who tweeted, “Laudanum, an opiate. Man, those were the days,” and Jason Hensel, first to tweet the specific Mrs. Winslow ingredients of “morphine and alcohol.”

Your question of the day for today is…One year ago today, Leonard Cohen died at the age of 82. What was the name of his first band?
