Another interesting post from Ron…

This has been around previously but it’s interesting, amazing, worth repeating, and something to think about:
Abraham Lincoln was elected to congress in 1846.
John F. Kennedy was elected to congress in 1946.
Abraham Lincoln was elected President in 1860.
John F. Kennedy was elected President in 1960.
Both were much concerned with civil rights.
Both of their wives lost children while living in the White House.
Both Presidents were shot on a Friday.
Both Presidents were shot in the head.
Now it gets really weird:
Lincoln’s secretary was named Kennedy.
Kennedy’s secretary was named Lincoln.
Both were assassinated by Southerners.
Both were succeeded by Southerners named Johnson.
Andrew Johnson, who succeeded Lincoln, was born in 1808.
Lyndon Johnson, who succeeded Kennedy, was born in 1908.
John Wilkes Booth, who assassinated Lincoln, was born in 1839.
Lee Harvey Oswald, who assassinated Kennedy, was born in 1939.
Both assassins were known by three names.
Both assassins’ names are composed of 15 letters.
Now hang on to your seat:
Lincoln was shot at a theater named Ford.
Kennedy was shot in a car called Lincoln made by Ford.
Lincoln was shot in a theater and his assassin ran and hid in a warehouse.
Kennedy was shot from a warehouse and his assassin ran and hid in a theater.  *****
Booth and Oswald were assassinated before their trials.
And here’s the kicker:
A week before Lincoln was shot, he was in Monroe, Maryland.
A week before Kennedy was shot he was with Marilyn Monroe.
Creepy, huh?
