Royal Wedding Redux #UselessRoyalty
Here's CNN's fast facts and figures about the mishugas on Friday. Call it the thinking man's guide. Seriously, though, this is a wedding between a titular monarch in waiting and a social climber. The woman could become the queen of England, having risen to the point of having no real power at all -- a sort of social retirement. Why is this all anyone can talk about?
And don't talk to me about Diana. The woman took on a real social change. Other than a charity fund to which people can donate in lieu of presents, I don't see that here, though I admit I can wait.
