Ben Franklin did everything

posted by Jason Kottke   Jul 31, 2009

Maira Kalman posts another one of her wonderful illustrated stories, this time about Ben Franklin and the nature of invention.

I don’t think he was ever bored. He saw a dirty street and created a sanitation department. He saw a house on fire and created a fire department. He saw sick people and founded a hospital. He started our first lending library. He saw people needing an education and founded a university.
