After watching the television show 'Killing Lincoln' last night, I can officially say I felt cheated. I believe the story, as well as the Kennedy assassination, have been exploited and over-analyzed for years, and people like me only watch shows about them in the hope that the author has gained some insight or uncovered some new fact that will add some interest to the subject.

In September, British researchers believed they had made a pretty startling discovery while digging under a car park in Leicester, which is about 100 miles southeast of London.

They had come upon what they thought were the remains of King Richard III, who died fighting the forces of Henry Tudor at the Battle of Bosworth in 1485. He is the last English monarch to die during war.
