History buffs might not know this already but it seems as if this week—April 14th to April 20th—might be the worst week in American history. Things like President Lincoln being assassinated, the Bay of Pigs invasion, the Columbine shooting, the Virginia Tech school shooting, the Oklahoma City bombing, the Boston Marathon bombing, etc. all happened during this week in history.
Of course, if you look back far enough into history, you're going to find something terrible for every day because, well, terrible things happen all the time. But you have to admit, this week just isn't a good week for American history. Maybe it's because of the weather. Maybe it's because people suck
