Thirty-three years ago today, an event very important to my life occurred, though I took no notice of it at the time. I was more interested in immediate events, such as figuring out what everything within reach tasted like.
Still, without my notice, it occurred: The long-lost Duchy of Burgundy welcomed the birth of its rightful ruler. And the world became a better place. At least a better-observed and critiqued place.
Long live the Duke!
