What I Wanna Know

"Genius without education is like silver in the mine," wrote Ben Franklin, whose soul kicked the bucket, got its [Oh how the Queen's English needs an androgynous pronoun!] – ticket punched, & turned in its dinner pail on its way back to the Blue Beyond whence it came, 220 earthly years ago today. So, what I want to know - don't you? and if not, why NOT? – is the soul/construct the world & his Philadelphia/London/Paris neighbors knew as Benjamin Franklin deader now? more advanced in Heaven? than he was on the 17th of April, 1790?
Guess I'll find out later. Guess we all will, huh?
