Jefferson and Franklin were “Beloved and Venerable” Friends … a compilation borrowed from the internet.
We know that not all of America’s Founding Fathers got along well. There was a period of bitter rivalry between Thomas Jefferson and John Adams before they finally reconciled later in life. Jefferson and George Washington thought highly of one another early in their careers, but political differences drove them apart and their relationship was never restored. Jefferson even refused to attend memorial services for the late president of the United States.
But of all the well-known founders, perhaps it was Dr. Benjamin Franklin that Jefferson was most endeared to and had the most in common with. Franklin was Jefferson’s “beloved and venerable” friend, and in many respects, Jefferson’s mentor as well. When Jefferson was appointed Ambassador to France (a position first held by Franklin), he was asked by a Frenchman, “It is you, Sir, who replace Doctor Franklin?” Jefferson replied, “No one can replace him, Sir; I am only his successor.”

“Out, damned spot! Out, I say!” laments Lady Macbeth as she attempts to scour an invisible bloodstain in one of Shakespeare’s most memorable scenes. The miserable murderess tries scrubbing her guilt—and her hands—clean. While it doesn’t work for Lady Macbeth, a paper in Science suggests that hand washing reduces inner turmoil by “Washing Away Postdecisional Dissonance.”
We say, “get to washing” for those who would subvert the rule of law and good governance in order to $fund$ themselves. All the while we’ve watched them ensure political ‘station’ and status that’s been hijacked and purchased with
