no hype- And less on late '60s / early '70s cultural references? I like Les Halles a lot too. Glad you enjoyed it.

Franklin wanted this species as the U.S. official bird...it is...right next to the stuffing and cranberry.

Main Line- Did you ever read the book about Franklin's deal with the England during the war? A U of F histy prof in the '80s made the argument BF cut a deal with the crown and was a spy known by a code #.

History documents there was a spy known by a code # but no one has ever been able to prove who it was. Only that they were highly placed within the colonies. Amazing book. In the bottom of a storage facility in NE FL. I gotta get back down there.
