Ford Assassinations Attempts Recalled.

I laughed when I read that headline. In light of the fact that Gerald Ford recently passed away, it makes complete sense that any pending assassination attempts would be recalled. Or canceled.

Remembered would probably be a better word choice. While it’s true that recalled can equate to remembered, it also carries several other meanings. For example, to cancel, take back, or revoke.
