    Yes, yes, yes. Perfectly reasonable POV.

    Le' sigh.

    I absolutely never read or watch anything about the Kardashians, yet they continue to annoy me. Pop culture is hard to avoid.

    That's the point. She wasn't President! Or Bliar, or Cameron... I won't even mention the present incumbent.

    Maybe my user title will provide a clue.

    Huge tourist attraction.

    Hey, if they want a monarch far be it from me to complain. It generates a lot of tourist money. As to the interest in the upcoming nuptials of Harry and Meghan, royal doings are always of interest to some and in this case it's an American marrying into the family and a woman of mixed race. That's more interesting than most royal weddings.
    Thanks from Friday13 and Madeline
