Today's Tour de France stage, which aired this morning and has just begun again in prime time, features some nice aerial shots of the Fort de Joux, where Toussaint Louverture was imprisoned and died. Quite an impressive edifice.

Hi Mike, could you publish your history of rome book/transcripts on the google play book store? I have a gift card I would like to use there instead of amazon

Why wouldn't Napoleon just kill the Spanish royal family? Maybe I've been watching too much game of thrones but with all these people pledging loyalty to someone you have in a jail cell this doesn't make sense to me.


Napoleon wasn't truly a bad guy. A complicated, highly intelligent guy who made occasional poor decisions, yes. But not truly bad.
