In reference to Andrew Gmerek’s Nov. 12 column, there are many excellent recent scholarly biographies of Benjamin Franklin that illustrate the origins of our democracy and conservativism and liberalism that might surprise many.If some think these are contentious times, many would be amazed at how hot and heavy times were when our Founding Fathers and mothers got involved in politics.
