Death and the Maiden

The final victims of the Terror in Nantes were four young girls.
“I do not want pardon, I want to die,” cried the innocent child. “I see my sisters, they are ascending up to heaven. They are calling me, they are waiting for me. O, have pity, executioner, and let me die. I am guilty—just as guilty as they were. I hate the Republic—I detest it! Vive le Roi! Vive le Roi!”(Read entire article.)

So, sometimes "Death" did have a conscience!
This has really been a wonderful CWG conference--I am sorry you could not attend. Jerry Webster says Hello! I told him that you and he should do a panel next year about your reverse experiences re: publishing books yourself to finding a publisher!
The conference won't be in Valley Forge next year because the Trade Show needs to find a new home (a casino is going to be built here!)

Tell Jerry that I think it is a great idea, too, and that I want a copy of his new book to review!

Some of your readers may be interested by this tv documentary about a king who was able to prevent a revolution in his kingdom just within the past few months.

It's interesting to see that the themes you broach in the rear-view mirror have not yet run their course.
