As Far As Art Goes, That's Pretty Good




The Ticket talked about this mural this morning. Then someone remarked "Who would be on the Mount Rushmore" of presidential assassins? (Ok, calm down.  It's just edgy morning radio. We're all adults here.)

But it got me thinking about that question from an historical standpoint. Oswald makes it. John Wilkes Booth is a shoo in.  Presidents Garfield and McKinley were assassinated but does anyone know their killers' names off the top of their heads?  I think I'd place would-be assassin John Hinkley, Jr. where Theodore Roosevelt's face is (Roosevelt shouldn't be on Mount Rushmore anyway.) And then I'd go with Sirhan Sirhan (presidential candidate assassin.)

And that's your dark Friday morning extra random thought.
