What Price To Hold The Puppy-Wuppy?
If the Royal Family are the nation-state equivalent of a purse dog -- ornamental creatures of no practical use, doted on by the owners who support them -- then Fergie's terrible indiscretion is to have sold off chances to hold a pampered Pomeranian (or some other dust-moppy doggie). Who cares?

"I saw to what extent the people among whom I lived could be trusted as good neighbors and friends; that their friendship was for summer weather only; that they did not greatly propose to do right; that they were a distinct race from me by their prejudices and superstitions."

I AGREE! While many of us have distant old sod relatives (mine are German/Irish), I've never understood the Anglophilian attitudes of some Americans-including the press. I used to work with an anglophile, who was prattling on about some royal or another, when I interrupted and and said, "I THOUGHT WE FOUGHT A WAR TO GET AWAY FROM THOSE A$$h****!" She didn't speak to me for over a month, which was a good thing.
Yeah, but 500,000 pounds to hold the puppy. Sheesh, I know some royalty I could sleep with for cheaper than that. I don't know how I could have phrased that in a more Neo-
Victorian fashion. What's your taste? Exiled Saudi Princess? Jewish American Princess? No strike that! the J.A.P. would cost more than the "puppy"....
