You beat me to stating the unmentionable, this IS old news, ha ha.

I'm sure not even Jefferson would have let it be known that he did this, at least to the masses, before or during his presidency. Afterword, he probably didn't give a damn.

I was discussing with an xian the other day how we have few, if any, polymathic people around today, especially in the way Jefferson was. He thought there were many polymaths about. I don't think so, too much information out there today. I have a copy of the first Ency. Britanica and it's only 3 volumes. I could probably have memorized that. Try it with the current edition.
