(It probably shouldn’t . . . but it usually does!  Our memories are short, and the prevailing attitude seems to be:  What have you done for me, lately?    The French actually ARE still grateful, for the U.S. liberating them in WWII, but so many in the U.S. forget what they did for us during the American Revolution.  To me, this cryptoquote is a day late, and a dollar short!  I also think I might have to agree with Art on this one.  I tried Banning, Fanning and Manning, before resorting to doing a search on the quotation itself!  Canning???  What kind of name is that?!?!  The dude was fairly quotable, but I’ve never heard of him before.  I guess you’d have to be a Brit!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
