Y'know, I just keep respecting Jefferson more as I learn more about him. He was a kook, but he was *my* kind of kook. The quote below is excerpted from Charley Reese. "Jefferson was a man who could say to Aaron Burr when Burr tried to blackmail him: Say what you will. If it's true, I'm not ashamed of it; if it's false, the people I care about will know it's false."
