To Orwell Today,

Dear Jackie,

I have also found these facts:

Abraham Lincoln was elected to Congress in 1846.
John F Kennedy was elected to Congress in 1946.

ANDREW JOHNSON and LYNDON JOHNSON each has 13 letters.

JOHN WiLKES BOOTH and LEE HARVEY OSWALD each has 15 letters.

Both assassins were Southerners who held extremist views.

Both men were succeeded by vice-presidents named Johnson who were southern Democrats and former senators.

Both men were killed by a bullet that entered the head from behind.

Both men were deeply involved in civil rights for African Americans.

Colin Johnson

Greetings Colin,

Thank you for your new coincidences. I'll add the "Lincoln and Kennedy elected to Congress dates" and the "number of letters in AJ/LJ and JWB/LHO names" to the list.

But I won't add the other items because:

- it's not a fact that both assassins were Southerners because JFK's assassin has never been identified. He was an anonymous sniper shooting from the Grassy Knoll

- the southern Democrat and former-Senator similarities of the VPs is too general

- both men were NOT killed by a bullet that entered from behind. The bullet that killed Kennedy entered from the front, as can be seen on the Zapruder Film

- Lincoln and Kennedy weren't "deeply involved" in civil rights for African Americans, they were just presidents who treated them equally and upheld their rights as American citizens

All the best,
Jackie Jura
