Thread Name: BS: The Coronation
Subject: RE: BS: The Coronation
I woke up at 6:30 here, and as I was snuggling in to go back to sleep, I remembered that it was set to happen about 7:00, so I flipped on the TV at the end of my bed and gazed at the event on 4-5 different stations.
My takeaway was that it would be hard for the country to give up the pageantry. I would hope that, eventually, after removing the monarchy, some sort of ceremony could happen, say, every 10 years to mollify those who crave such things. Tourism brings money, and there are SO many artifacts that can't just be tossed out.. ;>).
   Yeah, I can see issues about what to do with descendants of the current batch, but other countries have solved that.
oh well, not my problem.
