DC compared to Versailles? Is it because we have an apartment development named Louis at 14th? Apparently not. DC is said to be "very much like Versailles before the French Revolution," according to historian John Steele Gordon. Washingtonians have become like the French nobility, who spent their lives in the palace at Versailles "and didn't know much about what went on outside that world." [Washington City Paper]
