That was awesome, David.


"The Victorians delicately referred to her as "La Grande Horizontele."

"Homicidal temper; carried a whip. One of the most outrageous women of her time."

"So did her temper. When a man annoyed her, she typically would slash him across the face with the whip she always carried. On one occasion when a lover proved to be disappointing, she fired her pistol at the luckless romeo as he dodged ricocheting bullets while escaping down the street with his pants around his knees. But, on first meeting, she was charming, very charming"


Nice.

Here's a related question: Which famous person in history would you want others to think of you as?

For me, it's Edmund Wilson.

Thank God you didn't say Marie Antoinette. When we had to pick French names back in school, my teacher allowed everyone else to pick their own but refused to let me pick mine citing I reminded her of Marie.
