On this date in 1743, the man who would become this nation's third President was born. Besides being the third President, I consider Jefferson, along with Benjamin Franklin, to be one of the leaders of The Enlightenment on this side of the Atlantic. I think my next bible will have to be a Jefferson Bible.
But enough about Jefferson. Today is also the birthday of a certain lady on a Roman Holiday. Happy Birthday, Mom! I hope you're enjoying Rome.
