    ... (the first Joseph Jenckes; there were two in my direct line) was the first coiner in the 17th century, and founder of the Saugus Iron Works, MA, and got the first patent for a scythe.  He manufactured the dies that made the "pine tree shilling" of Massachusetts.

    I'm sick of attempts to steer this nation from principles evolved in The Age of Reason to hallucinations derived from illiterate herdsmen. ~ Crashing Vor
