Story time! A few  years ago, my family went to Monticello, Thomas Jefferson famous homestead. Since the trip if you mention his name to my mother, she will eloquently tell anyone she can about the Hemings family, and Jefferson’s pitfalls as a father. I’m sure she isn’t the only one. If you check out the John Adams and Alexander Hamilton book lists, it appears he had enough tension books could be written about it, and there’s probably people re-evaluating his character and accomplishments as I write. His tension with John Adams was so fierce they both died on the same day. Jefferson won. He died first. I’m being historically inaccurate since they reconciled during their retirements. How sweet, a real love story in the making.
Also, I hope all those French doors were worth the debt you got yourself into, Tom.
