What you say makes sense. I guess I'm just a sucker (haha! I stole your word!) for the lesser knowns of history. Plus I love the character of Rutledge in the movie/musical 1776 which is what got me looking into his life.
Now, if you don't mind, I have a two hour PBS special on John Adams starting in 6 minutes. I have to go cancel a few plans and unplug my phone...
Oh yeah, I almost forgot.
More likely than not, Setanta, you can expect a comment or question from me tomorrow or later tonight on or about John Adams that I expect you to attack/destroy/disagree/or any combination of the above. :wink:
