A lot of different topics emerged from my reading today.  I did keep my concentration on Bismarck, but the problem is that the Siege of Paris just wasn't all that long.  I know, to the people in Paris it must have seemed a long time, what with eating cats and dogs and rats and camels and elephants and then having to deal with shells exploding in one's favorite bistro.  The price of a balloon ride out must have gone higher than the balloons.
The more I read and write about Bismarck, though, the better I like the guy.  A mensch, already!
