rea OBIT: HRH Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother (89* d) RE: OBIT: HRH Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother 31 Mar 02

*sigh* could I just point out that the purpose of the thread seems to have been to note the passing of a remarkable woman (whether you did or did not like her, she was remarkable). No one forces anyone to read these threads, and I'm sure we all skip threads each day in favor of others. Why someone would feel obliged to come into a thread where people are mourning a passing and make snide remarks and political statements is beyond me. If you wish to do that, please start your own thread. There are people who are mourning. There are people who are not. Such is the way of life. In the Middle East at the moment, some are celebrating the deaths of Israelis in a cafe, others are mourning. They will continue to clash over their grief. I had thought the Mudcat to be a different place. How sad that instead it seems to be repeatedly afflicted with posters who disrespect the creators of a thread and post extremely rude messages about the subject. If they were to be polite and logical, as some have been on this thread, it would not bother me so much. Please, 'Catters, can't we be adults?

For the record, I'm an American who does not have any feelings about the British royalty. It is not an aspect of society I understand. I have my own political troubles about which to worry ("George II," for one).

Thank you all for you time, and a very happy spring.
