A very cool little blog-post on Benjamin Franklin in the NYT, as a part of the "And the pursuit of happiness" blog by writer-illustrator Maira Kalman.

Is there anything Franklin couldn't do?

Franklin was an early kite-surfer, it appears.

Feanor: Now I half-expect to learn that Benjamin Franklin also composed many of the surf-rock classics of the 1950s and was really the man who wrote "California Girls" for the Beach Boys.

Szerelem: yeah, NYT has some really good blogs tucked deep within its fold(like the one on songwriting...)
