Here are the spires of Sacré Coeur seen peeking out from
behind the buildings on the rue du Chevalier de la Barre. The
street was named for a nobleman who was tortured and
executed at age 20 in 1766. I won't go into detail but it was definitely
a case of "overkill." Among his "crimes": not doffing his hat as
a religious procession passed him, singing impious songs,
and having a copy of Voltaire's Dictionnaire Philosophique.
