Benjamin Franklin and Colonial Money: A Reply to Michener and Wrightâ€”Yet Again
MICHENER AND WRIGHT (2006C) REPEAT THEIR AD HOMINEM attack on meâ€”repeat in that they offer little that is new or original. They simply rearrange and re-cloth their prior material and present it again.1 Much of their rearrangement consists of rhetorical gamesâ€”clever attempts to mislead the reader without being de jure dishonest. As in my past replies (Grubb 2005, 2006a), I will present new researchâ€”crafted here to reveal Michener and Wrightâ€™s attacks yet again for what they really are.
