Why not take this..shot in the dark to see whose buried in the tomb.

Nobody is burried in Grant's tomb.
Gran is buried under it not in it.

He was actually aiming for the guy who sold him the bad order of beef & cabbage at the area's first horse drive through. It's a fact...ask Mr. Ed. "A horse is a horse of course..unless that horse is inner-course...." "Yee haw..giddy up missy...daddy's a-cumin' home to roost."

If you want the truth to come out, keep the government away from it and have a panel review the finding because the government will have a compelling interest to hide the truth. Assange, where are you?

My 'friend' said that she is related to John Wilkes Booth but I don't believe her. Does anyone have a website that shows direct relatives from him???
