    I don't think you are alone in not knowing about this incident before doing your research. I doubt if any of my friends had heard of the "Inner Circle Affair" before.

    I'll be linking to this on Facebook though, so we can all be educated.

      I think you're right...I'm thinking that quite a few people have never heard of this episode of history. As I said in a comment above, I tried googling after I read about it, and I barely pulled anything up. One would think this would be a more famous case.

      I don't mind if you're straight. Just don't flaunt it in public.
