The Assassination

Yesterday Lincoln asked me why President Abraham Lincoln had been so disliked. This led to a discussion about slavery and the Emancipation Proclamation. At the end of our discussion Judah said,
"And that's why President Lincoln was shot in the back of the head." Then he paused thoughtfully and asked, "Did he get shot with a regular gun? ... or with a rocket launcher?"

And this is why I am happy I have girls. I don't think I would be able to understand boys. . ever. But then again Dino would have asked that question, or something just as strange.

The only logical question to ask, of course. I can't wait till my kids start asking questions like that.
