I just happened upon a rather confusing sentence that I can only assume contains a typo on a rather pivotal word. (This quotation occurs in the bottom paragraph of
“…Franklin had given a speech at the Constitutional Convention in 1787 warning that Jews prevented a grave danger to the United States and should be expelled.”
What danger did they prevent, exactly? A looming shortage of comically long beards? The lack of scapegoats fiasco of 1766? (Sorry, I couldn’t help it. I’m only kidding around, of course) ;j
My guess is that the typist meant to put “presented” as that would make a great deal more sense in context. I hope the powers that be read this and make the correction. If not, someone’s going to be made a nifter. If so, mozltof!
