Her Majesty is a Very Nice Girl


Liked the movie with Helen Mirren, but honestly, all of this anxiety about curtsying and bowing and protocol here sets my small r republican teeth on edge. I suppose we should be grateful that in this slovenly age, something or someone can nudge Americans to dress and behave properly. But while I would hope that every American she encounters has his or her midriff covered, I would also hope that she is greeted only by the polite American handshake. We dispensed with the other folderol in 1776.
