Happy July 4th!

Ben Franklin's beautiful self-composed epitaph: ""THE BODY of BENJAMIN FRANKLIN, Printer: Like the cover of an old book, Its contents torn out, And stripped of its lettering and gilding Lies here, food for worms; Yet the work itself shall not be lost, For it will (as he believed) appear once more, In a new, And more beautiful edition, Corrected and amended By the AUTHOR."

Happy July 4th! Enjoy your weekend!!
