Ben Who? ... Redux

Ok, back for another ride on my hobby-horse. I have already complained about the lack of press coverage for Leo Lemay's major new multi-volume bio The Life of Benjamin Franklin. So far the only newspaper review I'm seeing is, of all places, the Washington Times.

That's right: the Moonies are providing better history review coverage than the majors.

As it so happens, next Sunday falls right before the 300th birthday of Ben Franklin. You'd think this would be the perfect opportunity for, you know, one of those other Times to cover the book... but incredibly, there is no sign yet that anyone will be reviewing it.
