You know you are getting obsessed with the Lincoln assassination conspiracy when...

1. When you hear the song "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen, you snicker because you picture Freddie Mercury portraying JWB as he's singing it.

2. When watching the news, there is a little feel-good story about animals helping kids, and a person is being interviewed. The person's last name is Surratt. You immediately perk up and point to the screen- "Surratt!"

3. You want to take the climbing rope off your children's playground equipment because it reminds you of the hangings. While you are outside with your children, you hold the rope in your hands and think of them, and get a little teary-eyed.

4. You see actors while watching TV and mentally assign them into LA conspiracy movie roles....."that kid who plays 'Hannah Montana's' brother would be adorable and funny as Davey Herold.."

5. Watching a documentary about Germans and the Berlin Wall, a German man is interviewed. You think he's the spitting image of Atzerodt and would like him to wear a 19th century slouch hat.


No, this doesn't describe me at all, no way!  Embarrassed

6)  You've dropped a friend from Facebook when you found out she didn't know who Mary Surratt was.

Ha! I'll have to remember to use that one next fall when my husband goes on his annual hunting trip.

9. This is kind of mean, because I'm sure there are people who like Booth, but when bored you think of goofy insulting nicknames for Booth- Boothdemort*, Lord Pornstache, Sic Semper Slimeball, Johnnysniffles, Jay-Dubya-Bee, Boston's Bull's-Eye. (*-you get it only if you're a fan of "Harry Potter.")

10. You and your family are going on a trip to Florida in a month, and you would like to get a FL map and locate Geneva, and find a way to convince your husband to possibly drive through it, because that is where Lewis Powell is buried.

Vicki and I already did that.  These pictures were taken with our little Brownie in 1997.

11.  You call the Postmaster General to see what it would take to change "Clinton" back to "Surrattsville".

12.  You want to name your pets after the conspirators but your husband threatens to leave home and take the dogs with him!

14. You have a serious conversation with yourself as to whether you want to buy that assassination book you don't have or skip a day of eating...and eating loses.

17. You don't want to break your $5 bills because you hate to lose your Lincoln bills, always wanting to have Lincoln in your wallet, even if just pennies.

18. You hope to find a way to fit the word "sockdologizing" into everyday conversation.

You dream of the day the Surratt Courier, the Journal of the Lincoln Assassination, and the Lincoln Herald will all arrive in the mail on the same day.  I never thought it would happen.  Well, I cashed a trifecta ticket - all 3 came in our mail today.  Wonderful. 

Special kudos to John Stanton on a fine article.

This will be the last hardcopy edition of the Lincoln Herald.  It will be online only from now on.
