criminal minds at Versailles


What’s a criminal mind? No man, this thing takes imagination! On a large scale. And Versailles is a place of imagination. Just look around. This is really inspiring. Think, to take all of the man’s money; and so he wouldn’t tell anyone and make payments. Yea. The brain of this operation was a woman. Countess Motte-Valoi. Royal blood and all. They were all relatives. One extended family. But some had the money and the title, while the others the title and imagination.

Cardinal was a man of wit. He wrote about the dismemberment of Poland by Marie-Theresa of Austria, that the more she wept for it, the more she took. This was funny. But then Marie-Theresa’s daughter became the Queen of France. And the one who laughs last has no sense of humor.
