Sagan devotes a surprisingly large section to Jefferson:

Personally he was an extremely amiable man, reluctant to criticize even his sworn enemies. He displayed a bust of his arch-adversary Alexander Hamilton in the vestibule at Monticello. Nevertheless, he believed that the habit of skepticism is an essential prerequisite for responsible citizenship. He argued that the cost of education is trivial compared to the cost of ignorance, of leaving the government to the wolves.

I love this book

One of the drawbacks to moving around all over the world is having to leave books behind. I can't remember where I left this one behind, but when I finally got settled in Boston, I bought it again. Just to have it. I didn't read it again, I just wanted it nearby. Just in case.

51 out of 51 stars (just to one up Chris.
