Going full-curmudgeon on the royal wedding
I woke to the sound of heavenly choirs this morning. Maybe I died in my sleep and just finding out my tragic atheist mistake? Nope, it’s MrsDoF watching the royal wedding in the living room. OK, whatever.
There are kindred spirits on the web, however. People who share my dislike of royalty and pageantry. Here’s a couple Tweets from Neil DeGrasse Tyson:
Cost to build Endeavour orbiter: $1.7B. Net cost to British economy for day off, allowing everybody to watch RoyalWedding:$8B
Royal Wedding celebrates inherited power; the opposite of America’s founding principles. I’ll be watching the shuttle launch.
Prize for the best curmudgeonly take on the royal wedding goes to Tom the Dancing Bug. Something tells me Ruben Bolling is not a fan of royalty.
Happy last shuttle launch day! Well, that’s kind of sad, actually. One bright spot is that Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was able to travel to Cape Canaveral to watch her husband take that flight. A safe journey to them all.
