Historical Homonyms

Recently, I clicked on a link to a Newsweek article titled "San Diego's Pole Tax," wondering what an old Jim Crow tactic was doing in sunny San Diego. It turns out, the title was alluding to the illegal campaign contribution a strip club gave to the city's mayor and two city council members in order to revoke the "no touch" policy. Not quite what I was expecting, but I love that title. Historical Homonyms rock!
