I heard Glenn Beck talking about this, so....I looked it up.

I remember watching this program "I've Got A Secret" in the late 50's.

Instead of a carton of Winstons, they gave the gentleman Prince Albert in a can.

That's what my grandad smoked
Rolled his own.

He would hand me the can and ask how many 6's (the figure six) I could find in the picture. I believe there were nine.

Just a trivial side point to the thread; the chair that Lincoln was sitting in when he was shot is in the Henry Ford museum in Dearborn Mi.
