April Is The Cruelest Month

I have always found it interesting that April 15th is the confluence of historically important dates. Lincoln's death, the sinking of the Titanic and of course Tax day. I know that Lincoln was shot on the 14th and the Titanic was struck on the same, but they both waited for the 15th to succumb. Ominous. (Why is it that when ever I see the movie "Titanic" I always think "Come on Iceberg! ", Oh yes, the TERRIBLE writing. I hope such a bad movie is never made about Abe or I'll have to root for J.W. Booth.) So as you run to the post office on the 15th think of John Wilkes Booth chasing Lincoln with a hand gun around the deck of the Titanic saying "Sink semper tyrannus".
