I could be wrong, but I don't think "Kennedy" was the name of the theatre when Lincoln was shot.

Anyone visiting The Coach and Horses, Heath Street Hamstead, NW3, can see Miss Breezy's claims on the eastern wall, in living colour...but don't tell anyone I told you so.

The previous posters are correct in saying that President Lincoln was shot in Ford's Theatre, not the "Kennedy Theatre." Black helicopter enthusiasts may take heart, though, since the Lincoln automobile was built by the Ford Motor Company.. .. .While many historians have tried, no one has ever been able to find a secretary named Kennedy who ever served Lincoln during any part of his career.. .. .I have it on excellent authority, however, that Kennedy's car and Lincoln's carriage both had four wheels.

Errr.... .. .Kennedy was assassinated on November 22nd, 1963 so if he visited Marilyn Monroe a week before his death I doubt she would have been very good company. Not least because she died well over a year earlier - overdose on August 5, 1962.. .. .Oh, and "Monroe, Maryland" doesn't exist.. .. . <img border="0" title="" alt="[Eek!]" src="eek.gif" /> Creepy, huh? <img border="0" title="" alt="[Eek!]" src="eek.gif" />

Which several wasted hours later proves what we all suspected in the first place.. .The American nation is paranoid from birth, and looks for conspiracy in everything as it gives them something to talk with their shrinks about apart from the contents of their white things, that the furry creatures have been nibbling away at for far too long.. .If you really want to prove a conspiracy then start with the plot and work backwards. . .Works for me every time! . .what say you Herr Draper ? <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="biggrin.gif" /> <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="biggrin.gif" />. . . . <small>[ 30 March 2002, 01:29: Message edited by: Hostie from Hell ]</small>

Ms Suter, my sexual orientation is frankly none of your business, however my husband presumably has views on the subject.. . <img border="0" title="" alt="[Roll Eyes]" src="rolleyes.gif" /> . .I will say this only once, I am not anti American any more than I am anti British, sensible nations have learnt to laugh at some of their national characteristics, it is a phenomenon called humour that exists almost everywhere except areas of a certain landlocked individuals mindset, saying that I am not anti Swiss either. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Razz]" src="tongue.gif" /> . .. .You are not perchance the same flight deck inhabitant that I referred to as a complete w**ker whilst on secondment to a certain company full of very cross people? <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="biggrin.gif" />

Calling Ms Suter a w**nker is surely doing an injustice to all the w**nkers in the world?:D :D :D :D

I thought that according to the conspiracy theorists Kennedy was not shot by Oswald at all- in fact according to the tabloids he is still alive
