* GeniusBonus: There are a lot of historical references in the strip, as might be expected when you have Creator/BenjaminFranklin as a primary character. One which actually gets missed a lot, though, is that Ben previously helped two people. The first, listed earlier on, was UsefulNotes/AbrahamLincoln -- another is not expressly named until much later, but turns out to be Edward Murrow, a philanthropist and war reporter who made his name in 1930 and later would be an incredibly powerful reporter during the RedScare.
