At least this might keep him busy from opening his big dumb mouth!
Fox News' Bill O'Reilly is penning about book about the assassination of Abraham Lincoln entitled Killing Lincoln which will take readers "into Ford's Theater and into the mind of Lincoln's assassin John Wilkes Booth, and on the manhunt to find and bring to justice the killer of one of our greatest presidents."
The book is due for release in Fall 2011 and O'Reilly came about the idea after learning about Lafayette C. Baker, the detective assigned to the Lincoln murder investigation and helped find Booth.
Baker also claimed he had Booth's diary and that the Secretary of War Edwin M. Stanton was accused of removing pages and suspected to be involved in the assassination plot.
Says Bill, "the more I heard the more exciting and interesting it became, and I said, 'Look I can do a good book on this.'"
We agree that the subject matter is interesting, but do we really want to read a book by Bill O'Reilly? He also says the book will include lessons "for today, for contemporary America" but he wants to keep that a "surpise."
