Funny Story.... We were having a conversation at the dinner table about the doctor who helped John Wilkes Booth after the assassination of Abe Lincoln.I believe this conversation began after an American Idol contestant with the last name Mudd was discussed. Such is dinner conversation at the Debono household, but I digress... We were talking about how he jumped to the stage following the assassination. Ron mentioned that he remembered he was reported to have said something in Latin before he ran but Ron could not remember what it was. Mallory pipes up " I know what he said in Latin: OUCH!" This makes much more sense to me (and apparently her) than "Sic semper tyrannis!" Latin for "Thus always to tyrants"
