[mood |headached - but not as bad as Lincoln.]
[music |Baseball Game.]

John Wilkes Booth was the greatest matinee idol of his era. Though history books ararely mention it, the man who shot Lincoln was beloved and familiar to thousands of theatre-gowers and was especially popular with women, from whom he received a hundred fan letters a week. In fact, it was Booth’s familiarity with the layout of Ford’s theatre - he had played there many times - and his friendliness with stagehands that allowed him to penetrate the security guard so easily the night of the shooting.

It's true. I wonder if he'd be revered in the same light as Sarah Bernhardt now.. just.. a masculine light. You know? ;)

And oh dear.. haven't seen that one. Gotta say after seeing Team America I lost any respect I had for those two.

And I don't mean Lincoln and Boothe. :)
