Fairy Tale LivesPosted: April 27, 2011
I fail to understand all the attention that is given the Royal Family of England by the media. No other royal families are followed by media sources outside their own country the way the English royals are. They are not especially gifted, mentally or physically. At this point in time they aren’t even really rulers of a nation in the traditional sense of the word. However, the media especially in the United States is very, very interested in these people, for no apparent reason other than the fact that they exist.
So Willy and Kate, much like, his parents, Charley and Diana before them, are making their relationship permanent this week. Who cares?? Not to mention the constant, rather morbid, references to Diana, a woman beatified not only by her family, but apparently the world. For what? She was a relatively silly woman, well-known for her limited intellect, who spent most of her adult life running around like an alley cat in heat while vying for the title of London’s Biggest Trollop with rather stiff competition from her equally adulterous sister-in-law! So what is there to admire?
Anyway, I hope Kate takes a lesson from her many years deceased, but still very popular, mother-in-law’ s faux pas. Tuck yourself in at night, next to Willy, in your castle, made possible by the plundering of other nations over many centuries by his royal ancestors; and be happy, because, for some bizarre reason, the world is watching you.
Oh, and for the record, my ancestors fought in the Revolutionary War that freed this nation from the tyranny of England’s monarchial rule! I just don’t get it…
