Assassination Vacation

Assassination Vacation by Sarah Vowell is a great book. Vowell is an NPR contributor (to This American Life, mostly) and this book is about her travels investigating and living the lives of and visiting the sites of the assassinations and assassins of Lincoln, Garfield, and McKinley. Did you know that Lincoln's son, Robert Todd Lincoln, was either present or very nearly present at all three assassinations? This book is really fun reading.

And unrelated but along the same veins is this cartoon that still has me giggling:
