Thomas Jefferson’s home, Monticello, has his love of innovations on display, scientific and otherwise. It is hard to imagine a contemporary candidate for president of the United States who would have such an active curiosity and who would still be electable. I was sorry to learn that Jefferson’s financial affairs were in shambles when he died, but I loved the story of how Uriah Levy saved the house for future generations.
