Lit 101

In my college writing class, we have to read Sarah Vowell's Assassination Vacation, in which she visits all these sites related to the assassinations of U.S. Presidents. She visits Dr. Mudd's house. This amuses me, probably more than it should. Especially the part where she gets lost on the way there.

Hmm ... did Ms. Vowell end up getting lost at a place with a steam train and steam boat ?

I thought it was funny when they took a group of French foreign exchange students to Dr Mudd's house like it would mean something to them. They had never heard of Lincoln. The trip to Mt Vernon was similarly boring for them.

glad you found something amusing in your otherwise tedious class!
