Happy Bastille Day!

Today is Bastille Day in France.  How can one not love a holiday that celebrates the storming of a giant prison by an angry mob (which then led to the Reign of Terror in which a lot-o-folks lost a lot-o-heads).  Go do something French today, sure it’s not our holiday, but still an important day in the history of Western Democracy.
