Fixes incorrect cards and placement


// The fortune teller's third reading places the "Two of Cups" across another
// card, off-center. That View (1023) is cropped (130x64). All other horizontal
// cards (130x86, 130x87) are padded at the bottom with transparent pixels.
// We optimize the method that creates and places cards, then specifically give
// this card a fudged y position. Our subroutine reduces the size of cases in a
// switch. We could rewrite all its cases, but just rewriting case 4 and 5 is
// enough.


// The fortune teller's third reading displays a right-turned "The Devil" card,
// but Magda says it is "Death".
// We change the card to a right-turned "Death".


// The fortune teller's third reading has the wrong card at the center. The 3rd
// and 4th reading are about different people, yet both have "Queen of Cups".
// The 1st reading establishes "Queen of Cups" as: a woman of wisdom and love,
// kind, generous, and virtuous. This fits the 4th reading: she uses her power
// joyfully, giving gracefully and lovingly to others.
// The 1st reading establishes "Queen of Swords" as: a deceiver or deceived,
// having suffered through terrible hardship, she faces her sorrows bravely,
// but with deep loneliness. This fits the 3rd reading better: some cruel event
// shaped her life... ambition, self-deception, and she is falling in love.
// We change the 3rd reading's center card to "Queen of Swords".
