Well the "Queen " has passed through these parts recently creating quite a stir. Queen Elizabeth II has made a big splash locally & nationally but somebody help me here... Didn't we we fight a war to get rid of rule by kings and queens? Didn't we pretty much kick out her royal predecessors? I noticed she visited Jamestown but she didn't find time to visit Yorktown just a few miles away! I thinks it's kind of funny. I guess I just don't get the hype. Now I get the Jamestown celebration (But not the reinterpretation of events). For the record: If the "Queen" was coming down my street I wouldn't open the blinds in my front window to watch! For a rather thoughtful article about all of this, check out Pat Buchanan's latest.
