Watched Les Miserables this evening with Lady Savant in one of our regular heart-warming bonding sessions. And I learned something. Namely, that the Parisian anti-monarchist rebellion of 1832 was lead by blacks. Bet you didn't know that.
Now don't get me wrong. There were some white leaders as well, but they were uniformly headstrong and foolhardy, unlike the blacks who demonstrated a mastery of strategic planning and cool-headed practicality, and to whom the whites, wisely, deferred.
As I say, I never knew that. Didn't even know there were blacks in Paris in 1832. That's the great thing about the MSM. You learn something new every day.
