Your website is very informative. It was only in this website that I realized the story of lightning hitting Franklin's kite directly was not confirmed. I really need to know this because I might give the wrong story to the kids who will read my science textbooks I am currently writing. By the way, I am working in a private school as a curriculum developer for science education for the elementary and high school departments.

Rachel was here! I love Charmander. He's the BEST Pokemon in the world. CHARMANDER ALL THE WAY! >:) I think that people who don't like Charmander have really big problems. I mean, he is the best ever. The person who came up with him is like the best person in the world. Did you know that in one episode of Pokemon, Charmander beat Venasaur??? Venasaur is SO much better than the other Pokemon. Well, that is all.
Rachel. I luv Charmander :), I live in Charmanderville. [05-16-2000]

John [04-09-2000]

Ben is my hero. I personally think he ranks up there with Voltaire as far as overall public reach and influence is concerned. Without him, this world would be a much different--possibly darker--place to life.

I recently had to do a report on Franklin, I just happened to stumble upon your website. The wealth of information in it was and is fantastic. Thank you for putting the site together. On another note, I had to move away from the Philadelphia area recently, the site also made me homesick.
George O'Rourke [04-03-2000]

i found this site very interesting allthough i think that maybe it could use a little bit more information and discription,ut aside from that this site is fabulous:).

ras [03-15-2000]

Franklin was very impressed with the Iroquois nation, yet I see no mention of his writings about the real founders of this land. Nothing in the quotes, not even the common Remarks concerning the Savages. Where are they? Perhaps you just have them well hidden.. wouldn't want the word to get out, right?

MArk, 9 [02-07-2000]

I thought everything was real good and set up very neatly. The only trouble that I ran into was I was reading an article about police finding bodies in Benjamin Frankllin's house in London. They had an news article but it was so tiny you couldn't read it. I was wondering if by any chance you could find anymore information about that articl or even find out where I could go on the Internet to read the article I would be very grateful to you. Thank you very much.
