Dr. Father to Dr. Son

It has been Pakistan's generational Groundhog Day (the film, not the flim-flam/news-filler). Benazir Bhutto was assassinated and the doctor on duty was the son of the doctor who was given charge 56 yeas ago when Pakistan's first Prime Minister, Liaquat Ali Khan, was shot.

Father and son were both unsuccessful and the country's turmoil was kept roiling. Dr. Mussadiq Khan (neither he nor his father directly related to the assassinated PM) offered prayers that neither of his two doctor sons faced the same, "God forbid it doesn't happen to them."
