For several years now I have wanted to conduct a self-directed symposium on Benjamin Franklin in the city where he first came to prominence – Philadelphia. Finally it is happening. Amtrak 175 is heading down the coast and once in town, I’ll hop in a cab to a small hotel in the Old City.
I plan to share this experience here on my blog. Being sucked into the time machine…about to go back three centuries to walk where he walked and contemplate his extraordinary contributions and world view.
