Tough vote -- 'cause it's a toss up.

I voted 'Booth' for the same reason as Paul.

Makes me glad I don't go by three names.

Oh, you will if you ever assassinate someone. Patrick John Hannon. The sound of it sends chills down my spine.

I found myself ruminating on who did more damage to the US... weird.

Butterfly effect. Who's bullet altered history more. I voted for Booth.

It essentially set civil rights in America back 100 years. You could argue that perhaps if Kennedy had lived key events in the last half of the 20th century would never have happend. But I think it's too early to have that kind of historical hindsight just yet.

Has anyone read Manhunt: The 12-Day Chase for Lincoln's Killer? Good? Bad?

I voted for the guy that did less damage (Oswald)... whether he did it or not, Lincoln was the greater loss.

Hey Randy, I haven't read 'Manhunt,' but I have a friend who did (book on tape) and she raves about it. I'll probably give it a try someday.
