It's all about the Benjamin

If Benjamin Franklin were alive on his 300th birthday, it's not entirely clear what kind of reception he would get in Fort Worth. Yankee, Francophile, left-wing journalist, avowed secularist and legendary womanizer—OK, we know exactly what kind of reception he'd get. Luckily, Franklin's dead, and his place on the $100 bill makes him welcome everywhere. Even so, the actor playing him at his birthday party might want to stick to talking about kites.
