Bastille Day

Prise_de_la_bastille

Today is Bastille Day, celebrating the storming of the notorious Parisian jail on July 14th, 1789, and the beginning of the French Revolution. For a few years after that, it commemorated the fall of one tyranny and its replacement with another. Revolution, of necessity, had to become Revelation. Let’s hope for better luck for the Egyptians, Tunisians and others presently engaged in a similar process.

So, today, find someone French and give them a long deep kiss.

Oh, this is also the birthday of my friend James verDoorn. You can kiss him or not, as you see fit.
