a sad, sad, day…

Two news items has made me very distraught:

1). The stage has lost one of its best friends: Arthur Miller, playwright of Death of a Salesman passed away.

2). The British throne has seen some scandals and many anni horribili in its day… but this one is an all-time low… Prince Charles has announced his engagement to “that woman” – Camilla Parker Bowles. Although neither Charles nor Parker Bowles will ever accede to the throne, the Crown is hesitant to show any public acceptance of this impending marriage: generously bequeathing her the title: HRH Princess Consort… Not since the days of Anne Boleyn has England seen a more bewitching (not in a good way) social climber… even the American divorcee Wallace Warfield Simpson had some dignity about her seduction of the late Duke of Windsor.

Sigh…

*** Amendment ***
Following a comment posted by DeniseUMLaw, I realized that my tirade against “that woman” might be a bit misleading. What I was trying (and I’ll admit, not too effectively) convey was my distain for Parker Bowles… not women in general… If anything, I think Charles is the villain in this case… so really, he’s just getting what he deserves! Hmmphhh!
