In 1776, a Committee of Five was drafted to, well, draft the Declaration of Independence. [This is not to be confused with the other Council of Five, the Council of Five Elders, or even the Council of Elrond (totally off topic, but click here for a hilarious sendup of the Council of Elrond called DM of the Rings)…].
Dr. Franklin, the revered elder statesmen of the Continental Congress, was, of course, Charlie. Mr. Adams would have been the troubled Bailey, of our mixed metaphor; leaving our beloved Mr. Jefferson, both sensitive and somewhat of a prodigy, as the Julia/Claudia hybrid (he might’ve made a fine Charlie, as well).
