Thank you, B. Franklin

Some quotations are wonderfully satisfying. And so extraordinarily useful. Comforting, even.

(BTW, there is argument about the legitimacy of this quote, but We will credit Benjamin Franklin, unless somebody knows better.)

YIR likes to play fair.

  1. Well whoever thought of it was right on the money about that. And if everyone would just play fair, we could save the world! Thank you Mr. Schroder.

    • Well, I told y’all there was a muddle. And the article you cite says the same thing. What nobody seems to know is who *did* say it.

      Consequently, I am not retracting anything much, ’cause it’s a swell quote and B. Franklin was a swell guy most of the time. At worst, this issue adds a little Mystique to his reputation, and that’s always good.

      Still, We thank you for your research efforts. We tried and came up on the fence. Ah well.
