Happy Birthday, l'Divine Marquis!

Today would have been the 269th birthday of the Marquis de Sade. Some of you know that I am a huge fan, and perhaps fewer know that the fetishy activities named after him are not the sum of his life. Sade was a brilliant free-thinker and iconoclast. He refused to deny his beliefs, and spent the bulk of his adult life confined for them.

Now, apparently Sade did not want to be remembered, but I'd be a poor disciple if I followed orders or requests, so happy birthday!
