    It’s amazing how age sometimes brings on a really bad case of the dumbass.

    Don’t cut ‘em any slack. Make it four conspirators hanged, one a woman.

    Broadway’s supremo primadona Carole Cook was misunderstood in her statement. after all those who excel in the “arts” are high-strung, sensitive individuals incapable of harboring any possible trace of animus .

    Allow me to clarify her orphic mental processes.

    She’s just using her “Artistic license” to explain that John Wilkes Booth was just casting a “delayed” vote for George B. McClellan Lincoln’s Democrat opponent in the 1864 presidential race. And that’s exactly what someone should do for Trump’s former 2016 opponent Hillary Clinton.

    See, she’s actually a real pussy cat

    My sarcastic spasms sometimes get a little out of hand, Doug. It was the drugs I took as a wee lad. Take my advice. Stay away from guzzling Alka Seltzer tablets dissolved in Grape Kool Aid.

    ^^^Doug - I can still taste Smith Bros cherry cough drops.
    Thanks for the wayback moment! I can taste ‘em too, and see the black line drawing of the two brothers on the box!
    That hasn’t crossed my mind for probably 50 years.

    A historical note – while the wall is long gone, part of the brick building to the left in the Lincoln conspirator execution pics is still standing, and the spot where the gallows stood is now the edge of a tennis court near the National War College at Ft. McNair in DC.
