a penny saved is a penny earned...

but you can't take it with you when you go.
Above is Benjamin Franklin's grave. The man who did everything, invented everything, and was everything...lies here. In my opinion, he is one of the greatest Americans in our history, and the quintessential Philly guy. I've never been one to "see dead people", but there is something special about the site. Ben died on April 17, 1790, at age 84. His funeral was attended by approximately 20,000 people. Not a bad showing.

Go stop by and pay him a visit. He's right there by Independence Mall at the corner of 5th and Arch Street. Toss him a penny and go be great yourself.

Werd on the street, Ben's a good guy.
