‘Timeless’: The present isn’t perfect

Timeless
“The Assassination of Abraham Lincoln”
October 10, 2016

April 14, 1865

Confederate sympathizer John Wilkes Booth shoots President Abraham Lincoln at Washington, D.C.’s Ford’s Theater during a performance of “Our American Cousin.” Booth times his attack to the delivery of the line, “Don’t know the manners of good society, eh? Well, I guess I know enough to turn you inside out, old gal; you sockdologizing old man-trap!” He hopes to use the audience’s laughter to cover the sound of the gun shot.

After shooting Lincoln, Booth struggles with and stabs Major Henry Rathbone. Booth jumps 12 feet from the box to the stage below where he is generally reported to have cried, “Sic semper tyrannis!” Many in the audience thought it was all a part of the play – until Mary Todd Lincoln started screaming.

Lincoln is carried across the street to the Petersen boarding house where he dies at 7:22 am the next morning. Booth flees the theater and is killed 12 days later at the Garrett farm in Caroline County, VA.

THEN: “Screw. You.”

NOW

Sam is having the sexy times with Lady Cardboard and I just threw up in my mouth a little.

It’s a spell induced hallucination. Another attack on Sam’s mind designed to gather information. You know, if Lady Cardboard does end up being Sam’s love interest, the upside is it will give his Peen of Death a chance to do us all a solid.

The spell begins to wear off. Sam comes to back in the chair in the middle of the cellar.

“So … was it good for you?”
