FOOLS' PARADISE

In each issue of Fools' Paradise, we publish a short story, often, though not always on a humorous theme.  This week's story takes us to a prison cell in revolutionary France.

The Head and the Heart

By Gavin Sinclair

"On March 24th 1874, Jacques Rene Hebert, leader of the Enrages, a radically democratic faction within the Paris commune, having incurred the wrath of Robespierre, went to the guillotine. With him went many who shared his political views, and some who didn't."
