I can not get myself to give a flying shit about this event.
Sic semper tyrannis, quoth Marcus Junius Brutus.
This is a case study (see what I did there?!) in the sheer diversity of opinions on the board.I'm not a fan of the monarchy and I subscribe to the whole "we fought a whole Revolution to not care about the UK's royal family" camp.|
However, a lot of my Commonwealth friends had a lot of love for their queen, and the UK is our strongest and (IMO) most important ally. And by all accounts she seems to have been a pretty decent human being. So that's how I'm choosing to approach this development.
