    All the Princes and Princesses should be forced to get a real job just like normal people. The past of their ancestors is dirty and shameful. They are vestiges of uselessness.

    Big, do you always wake up on the wrong side of the bed??? My suggestion- Push that side against the wall. That way you can't roll off of that side, forcing you to wake up on the happier side!

    For those who bemoan the media's ongoing obsession with Diana, Princess of Wales, I have one question...

    Would you rather have that replaced by even more obsessive coverage of Anna Nicole, Nicole, Paris, Brittany, Lindsey, TomKat, Owen or anyone else who seems to be the Media Obsession Du Jour 2007?

    And... is the obsession with Diana ten years after her death any "weirder" than, say, those who still hold a torch for Marilyn 45 years after... or James Dean a half-century after his untimely passing?

    It is true. That whole monarchy was built on death and destruction. They raped and pillaged for everything they got. If that's your idea of a fairy tale, its time to wake up in the real world.

    All of that is a waste of space if you ask me. However, there are people out there dumb enough to follow that crap and enjoy it. You can find better ways to spend your time. If enough people don't pay attention to it, it will just go away.

    But even before that, the adoration from the British people started with the whole Cinderella romance story when she was so young and engaged to Prince Charles. It was like a real life fairy tale, and I think that many people have a soft spot in their hearts, however small, for fairy tales. The ones that don't, well, my guess is that these are the people that don't "get it."

    I still remember watching the wedding on TV.
    Now that makes some sense. There's some connection between this and what RYou said at the top of the thread.
