    This is an excert from a fictional mystery book written by James Grippando called the "Pardon".

    "Whoa." Calvin said gently to his horse, bringing the carriage to a halt. He turned and faced the governor. "Now , this is what I call the dark side of my tour, sir. For it was right here, where the old bandstand used to be, in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and thirty-three, that President -Elect Franklin Delano Roosevelt addressed a crowd of fifteen thousand people. Amidst that huge crowd there stood one very angry young man--a man who doctors would later describe as a highly intelligent psychopath with pet schemes and morbid emotions that ran in conflict with the established order of society. That disturbed young man stood patiently atop a park bench until the president finished his speech, then took out his revolver and fired over the crowd at the dignitaries onstage, intending to kill Mr. Roosevelt. The president escaped unhurt, but five innocent people were shot. The most seriously injured was Anton Cermak, the distinguished mayor of Chicago, who, before he died, told the president, 'I'm glad it was me, instead of you."

    My reason for posting this is to be sure I am not loosing my mind in the sense that wasn't something about this posted on here in the past and this Anton Cermak was a relative of Mike(Techguy)?

    It was kind of ironic that I had just closed out TSG and was reading before I went to sleep and ran across this.

    And yes I was lazy and didn't search for the thread. I seem to never have any luck with the "Search" function but after your answer I decided to just enter "Anton Cermak" and lo and behold there it was. I will try to be less lazy and more diligent in the future.:D
