Conversational fragment of the year.

Was Franklin a good guy?

Are you kidding me?

Was he a good guy?

Was he a god guy!? Benjamin J was The Man! You can’t even question it!

I don’t know anything about him. Why are you so precious about him?

What?! Are you serious?

Look all I know about the guy is that he was some big fat dude sitting way up there on a monolithic pedestal looking down on a nation that was ripped apart by poverty and wealth, where whites hated blacks and killed them for it and which is marked by continued arrogance to the rest of the world.

That’s Lincoln you idiot.

Then teach me, tell me what I should know other than that he invented lightning.

You’re an idiot.

Well help me, can you recommend a book?
