  1. The universality of these kinds of stories really speaks to something ineffable yet transcendent in the human condition. Adams’ struggle, in particular, with the giant snake that ate his mom is so deeply human and moving!


  2. John Adams’s cowardly attack on Franklin? That can’t be right. That’s not the brave, snake-fighting Founding Father we learned about in grade school.
