Royal Bore

Yesterday afternoon, after hearing the pre-commute traffic and weather report, I decided to go on a news blackout. I just couldn't deal with the amount of coverage that today's royal wedding was getting. I get it, England's second most popular redhead is getting married to a cute commoner from overseas. I guess it's the Irish in me, but I really couldn't give two fucks... and it's not like Hank will ever be king without some serious Game of Thrones level of violence. I suppose Hank is an okay guy, though he had his asshole 'bro' stage, he seems like he is now 'very fine people'. At any rate, he and brother Billy turned out better than Uday and Qusay... and it's funny that Vulgarmort was not invited to the nuptials, most likely out of fear that he'd sexually harass the bride. Luckily, I'll be working graveyard shifts this weekend, so I don't even have to listen to the traffic report before heading off to work, risking news exposure.

All snarking aside, I find the amount of coverage that the American media is devoting to this event unseemly... the raison d'être for the founding of this nation was so we didn't have to deal with people like Prince Hank and his family. This lesson used to be taught to our children by the media.

Amen, amen.
Britain has the whole royal thing down and we have Disney World, but their functions as tourist attractions are still pretty much the same.
Meanwhile in other real news Flint still doesn't have water, don't ask about Puerto Rico, and the weekly NRA tribute was staged at a school in Santa Fe, Texas (using the ever-popular AR-15 Childkiller rifle).
In the late Roman empire ships going to Egypt were told instead of wheat to bring back sand for the arena. What was it that guy George
Santayana said about repeating history if you don't learn from it?

Do I dare put on the radio again?

My sis and I watched a fair chunk of the BBC coverage (replayed for our Colonial time zones at midday-ish yesterday). She lived in London on and off for several years, and I've visited the UK several times.

Basically, it seemed to us, it was a lot of British people (and visitors) having a very good time on a gorgeous spring day. The fact that the bride's mother, who was present, is African-Americnn - and the bride herself may well identify likewise - is certainly historically remarkable, and may explain some of the extra attention the event is getting from the US media. I think you would have enjoyed the riproaring love-and-liberatioin address of the Episcopal Primate, Bishop Curry, who certainly woke up the assembled Anglo-Saxons.
