The Victory of Love And Common Sense Over Prejudice

Many stories have been written about the equal rights of people. Comparing history and present gives the mankind hope. Regardless of country of origin, race, sex or age or aristocratic roots, being it at work or in private life, we are putting back on the table discussion about personality traits, rather than personal origin. We are becoming more liberal than our ancestors were. We are giving more value to the vision of living fulfilled life vs....more

The Royal Wedding Kiss

We're disappointed with the lackluster peck exchanged by Kate and William at their wedding. We wanted passion, we wanted the Hollywood thing. If you think about it, in a sense, we're telling the couple that this -- their wedding -- isn't about them, that it's about us. We're a long way from Ancient Rome, but the roar of the Colosseum has returned in the form of global technology. ...more

The kiss thing really threw me for a loop. Wasn't it obvious in the fact the Kate was positively ...more

The Problem with Princesses

Disney has done us no favors, folks.  This morning I roused my sleepy 5 year-old out of bed and carried her into the living room to watch the Royal Wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton.  I thought she would be delighted to see a common girl become a princess in real life before her very eyes. I was wrong.  She watched in awe at first, but before I knew it, she was on the ground kicking and crying.  It was a fit of tumultuous jealousy and pure rage....more

It's not as if she is going to actually live a perfect life.. it's a job 24x7, and even if it's ...more

Living in the UK: An American Catches Royal Wedding Fever

I blame Shakespeare and PBS. I'm unashamedly, unapologetically and unabashedly Royalist. Honestly, I think most Americans are. For all our independence, rebellion and egalitarian principles, in our hearts, we all love pomp, circumstance, ceremony, history, heritage and glamour. We’re suckers for romance and fairy tale endings. And, who doesn’t love a wedding?...more
