Yes; I wasn't including him in my list of Masonic Presidents; as far as I
know TJ was not a Mason. Was Franklin, for that matter? (Of course BF was
not a President, though I once sent a correction to a web merchant who
apptly believed that he was.)
Because of his plain dress and his PA zip code, there were some, I believe,
who fingered Franklin as a Quaker, which he was not.
Show on History Channel about Franklin tonight, but I incline more towards
"Sunday, December 5, 2004 at 8:00 PM (ET) on Discovery Channel:
Ming Dynasty Astronaut
Buster takes the hot seat in the Mojave Desert in the myth of the 'Ming
Dynasty Astronaut.' Will Buster defy the laws of gravity and survive an
explosive launch into space? Adam and Jamie play mad scientists in the
quest for free energy."
History Channel is trying to milk the NATIONAL TREASURE cow, with a show
about Bible Codes right before Franklin, and having Nicholas Cage host the
Franklin show. But those in the mood cd equally well watch "Ramses: Wrath
of God or Man?" on Discovery, right after the MythBusters.
