Benjamin Franklin, The Workingman’s Hero

I’m spending a few days in Philadelphia, the city that gave us one of America’s working heroes, Benjamin Franklin.  As a teen, Franklin was apprenticed to his brother and learned the craft of printing.  He later published his own writing and became famous for it.  He also won fame as a politician and scientist.  He valued work and never lost his sense of curiosity.  For me, he is the most amazing citizen our country has ever produced.

Earlier tonight I saw a cool sculpture of Franklin at his printing press.  Here are two photos.  Click on the image to enlarge the photo.
