Cryptoquote Spoiler – 11/19/20

William Franklin, son of Benjamin Franklin

Constant complaints is the poorest sort of pay for all the comforts we enjoy.”   —   Benjamin Franklin

(I’m assuming he came up with this quote post-independence.  Because pre-independence complaining was positively de rigueur, for patriots.  This quote is actually more suited to William Franklin, Ben’s illegitimate son, and Governor of New Jersey, who was a staunch Tory.  Boy, Thanksgivings must have been very interesting at that house!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    If I recall correctly, I read in high school that Good Ol’ Ben was a bit of a philanderer. When did he have time for all that he accomplished ?

    Maybe Ben was his days’ version of Tiger Woods. As hard as Tiger worked at his craft, I admire him for having the time and energy for his “extra curricular projects”.

    I think Ben was an outright dog, lwc! I think I’ve read somewhere that many geniuses have very strong libidos!

    I think that poor Tiger more than paid the price for his indiscretions. Getting caught that is! The divorce and media circus really took its toll on him, in many ways. It almost pays NOT to be rich and famous!
