I Ranna Wok!

Did you know that John Wilkes Booth was killed by a dude named "Boston" Corbett, who earlier had castrated himself, grew his hair long to emulate Jesus, and once said, "It's wicked to play baseball on the lord's day. Don't do it."?

I've been studying up on the Lincoln assassination. I also didn't know about the four people who were hanged, all having been found guilty of assisting in the assassination. One was Mary Surratt, the first woman to be executed by the U.S. government. Her boarding house was used by Booth and others (including her son) in the planning of what was originally supposed to be a kidnapping attempt.

I'll let you do your own research if you want to know more. But, it was kind of funny how after reading all this serious stuff, including details of Surratt's execution, the last line of the her wikipedia page said

Mary Surratt's boarding house is still standing in the Chinatown area of Washington D.C.; it is now a Chinese restaurant called Wok and Roll.

Mary Surratt may know political assassination, but she doesn't know shit about Kung Pao- Wok and Roll is awful...
Wow, you've been to WAR? And you're saying it's hell?
I have also been to Wok and Roll, hungover as all hell, the day of a buddy's wedding. Any ties to history were purely coincidental at that point.

Incidentally, I found a jar of Big Papi salsa in a Brooklyn Key Food last night. This never would've happened if Steinbrenner were still alive.
I'm not saying WAR is hell, just saying they're catering for Dante...
Wow, funny comments for an execution. Maybe next we can laugh at Ethel Rosenberg.
Hey, "wok and roll" started it....
