    I happen to know the picture, but you’re absolutely right.  Look at any of the ‘classic’ pictures from later years, white suit, white hair and moustache – same eyes.  Unchanging, never dimmed.

    And here I thought it was a young Steven Segal.  Hmmmm.  Perhaps I should have taken Segal’s famous advice, “It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt.”  Or was that . . . . nevermind.

    Lewis Powell was the name I was trying to remember….Wikipedia has an article about him, including a photo when he was in custody on the USS Saugus.

    Hmmmmmmm….I pasted in the photo, and it appears until I “Preview” it – then it’s not there anymore.  Ah well. 
    They hanged the conspirators in custody on July 7, 1865….just under three months after the assassination.  How things have changed!!
