Discuss "Assassination Vacation" by Sara Vowell

For the September meetup I thought it's time to venture into the realm of non-fiction. Sarah Vowell is a radio commentator (a regular on NPR's This American Life) and voice actor (Disney's The Incredibles).
From the Amazon blurb: "With Assassination Vacation, she takes us on a road trip like no other -- a journey to the pit stops of American political murder and through the myriad ways they have been used for fun and profit, for political and cultural advantage."
There are nine copies of this book in the Ottawa Public Library system, and of course it's still in print and available via Amazon.
