Both had wives who lost their children while living in the White House.

Both Presidents were shot on a Friday.

Both were shot in the head.

Lincoln's secretary, Kennedy, warned him not to go to the theatra.

this statement confuses me. only their wives lost children? were these children from previous relationships?

are we saying both presidents had step-children?? or that both first ladies were into booty calls??!?!

OR, does this mean they were both married to inept caregivers who simply lost ( in the traditional sense that they simply could not find ) their children while living in the White House? If that is the case, are those "children" still meandering around those great, White wall???
