26. I'm actually amused because I've seen some folks (in my own life)...
who are pissing and moaning about the pomp and circumstance of a royal wedding but follow Michelle Obama's fashions with a vengeance bordering on obsession. I'm a conflicted anti-monarchist. I bristle at the idea of hereditary rule, but do appreciate a bit of pageantry and romance now and again.
