Hold the presses! The Baroness Seitzinger has been involved in a most tragic accident. Apparently, she was taking her refuse down her back stairs (alas, we have all had to give up help in this economy). Almost down, she ran into a huge, Gila Monster (actually a two inch lizard), startled herself, and twisted her ankle. Tragically, gangrene set it and her foot has reportedly (by Mrs. Stuyvesant-Fish) to have been amputated. Equally tragic, she has had to be scratched off of my up-coming Society Quadrille for The Poor. I don't know....can I start a stubbed Quadrille?
No one knows what happened to this shoe in the emergency room. If found, please let us know (or pay for the match).
A coded note from her hospital room reported the treatment she has received from her unofficial caretaker, Mrs. Stuyvesant-Fish: "Nurse Ratched desires order, and she wants complete power, so she manipulates her patients and the staff to do fulfill her desires. As the head nurse and as a woman with many connections both inside and outside of the hospital, she is able to maneuver things so that most situations fit her expectations. If she needs to, she uses the force of her hatred to get things done. Though she smiles a lot and talks sweetly, she’s definitely not a kind or charming woman. She is, however, a woman with strong will and a fanaticism for control. She pursues power with intensity and is very successful at getting people to do what she wants."
