Did I hear something about a wedding?

williamkate-1

I saw a great tweet earlier today:

“i honestly don’t care about a wedding where I wasn’t invited and doesn’t have an open bar.”

My sentiments exactly.

In fact, I got a kick out of the website of the Guardian in the UK. Today’s homepage is of course dominated by news and photos of the royal wedding, but the Guardian offers a convenient button labeled “Republicans click here,” Republicans in the British context meaning those who oppose the monarchy.

Click it, and poof! — you get a homepage with absolutely no mention of the Windsor-Mountbatten/Middleton ceremony. Like it never even happened.

Clearly, though, hundreds of millions if not billions don’t share my attitude. The confluence of princess fantasies, wedding porn, the lingering grip of the British Empire on the public imagination and a celebrity culture ensures it became a much-watched media extravaganza.

Given all that, I sifted through my memory banks for an appropriate song to kick off the evening’s festivities, and only one came to mind.

(Oh, and by the way, I’ve never been able to remember which of the two British princes was which. But after seeing some of today’s photos, I now have a mnemonic device: “One of them’s Harry. The other one isn’t.” Given his growing bald spot, then-King William might be asking President Trump for a few combover tips a few years from now.)

Here’s to you, Will and Kate:

Chuckling at all the people who have accused me of being cynical!!! While I do believe that marriage — in our society — is overrated and entered into frivolously or for selfish reasons more often than not, I have no problem celebrating (a) young people in love, or (b) people who want to celebrate a national symbol that we don’t happen to have. As such, I was up in the middle of the night with friends and mimosas, taking JOY in something that was (gee whiz) not about me!

I like this one too, from back in the “long-haired” days of the early 70’s. Two long-haired college students went to a busy bar and had trouble finding a table. Finally, they asked a bald guy if they could share his and he agreed. As they sat down, one of them said (in reference to the baldness) “Hope it isn’t catching”

And the bald guy said “If you want to waste your hormones growing hair, that’s your problem”

carlosgvv @ 4:20,

Strange, huh? I think it’s because they have something we don’t: a living symbol, a figurehead. While the monarchy possesses no real political power (wisely choosing neutrality in politics), it does provide the people with a sense of history and continuity that we lack. Decades, wars, and leaders come and go, but they have a steady presence, a woman of rank and influence who, as far as they know, is looking out for them in a maternal sort of way. Because they are Brits, there is a sense of identity tied to it. It’s part of who they are.

Contrast that with us: 300 million orphaned half- and step-siblings, screaming “Bast@rd!” beating the *bleep* out of each other, fighting for a seat at the dinner table and whatever biscuits we can get if we kick the others out of the way. The nanosecond we elect a new President, nearly half the country hopes he will drop dead, the sooner the better. Heck, we can’t even agree that old people and helpless children should get medical care for crisesakes. We ARE the motherless, ill-bred bast@rds our forefathers wanted us to be. Sometimes it’s nice to peer into the window of a nice family and watch them be polite to each other….. or… something like that.

Good story.

When we were there, they were having an archeological dig under the cathedral and we talked our way into the catacombs. Really cool stuff.

There was one camera shot from the wedding this morning that a friend told me to watch. It was taken from the very top of the inside of the “cross” of the ceiling, and the shot started askew, but slowly turned to reveal the shape of the building as being a cross. that’s what I like about things like a Royal Wedding.

How sick is an individual to claim that our nation is made up of 300 million orphans?

It is obvious that they are out there……………….Obama is president.

I will put the mentally sick people ……….behind me…………..Liberty and love will prevail.

jt,

It was a metaphor for our multi-cultural, independence-minded, “every man for himself” political climate used to describe why some Americans are facinated by the British royals even though the monarchy contradicts our belief system. I’m sorry you are offended by things you don’t understand, like metaphors. Bless your heart.

Off the music topic for a minute…..

Just got a note from a friend of mine in Alabama. His daughter was in one of the intact houses at the bottom of this pic (picture 1) and it received no damage. Amazing.
