Benjamin Franklin Hits the Big 300

Benjamin Franklin was born 300 years ago today. I'd be remiss if I didn't wish my favorite founding father a happy 300th. We could use more men (and women, for that matter) like old Ben. The man loved life and he loved liberty. And he participated fully in both.

Of all the great quotes attributed to this great man, my favorite has always been:

"Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy."

I'll be raising a toast to Ben tonight.
