Some pretty bad things, and some good, occurred today

In 1865, Abraham Lincoln, shot in the back of the head by the scumdog John Wilkes Booth the night before, passed away.

One can only imagine how the world would have been different. Certainly, the Republican Party would be.

In 1912, the ocean liner Titanic sank, taking more than 1,500 lives with her. The story was later made into one of the most profitable motion pictures in history (but I didn’t like it very much).

And in 1947, Jackie Robinson broke major league baseball’s infamous color line and took the field for the Brooklyn Dodgers.

And, born this day, Leonardo da Vinci

and Emma Thompson

Later,
