On this day in 1752 Benjamin Franklin ventured out with his kite in hand and flew it during a thunderstorm. His goal was not to discover electricity but to demonstrate the electrical nature of lightning. His experiment was successful. His kite was struck by lightning and an electrical charge was captured in a Leyden jar. Ben Franklin had been interested in the nature of electricity since the 1740s. His understanding of electricity and the electrical nature of lightning led to him inventing the lightning rod. So today I tip my hat to the man who didn’t know when to come in from the rain. Now on to the links.
Below are some links to some outstanding articles by the best conservative bloggers in the world! Please take a few minutes out of your day to visit their sites and hit their tip jars if they have them. These are the good people who work hard to bring you the stories ignored by the liberal media. So tee it up and enjoy another SENTRY JOURNAL round at the links.
