A Concise Summary of the Opposing View

by John Hood

So it isn’t just the tabloids and entertainment reporters who are devoting a bewildering amount of time and space to coverage of the royal wedding. Even NRO has gotten in on the act. Well, to each his own I guess, but please allow me to offer a concise summary of an opposing view.

You have got to be kidding.

I don’t care about this event in the slightest. I can’t imagine how the marital arrangements and ceremonial productions of a few wealthy Englishmen affect me or anyone I know. My Carolinian ancestors long ago decided to withhold their allegiance to — and, not much later, their interest in — the hereditary monarchy whose members had once oppressed them. I would be slightly more interested in a marriage between any random professional baseball player and any random hip-hop artist, and I find both professional baseball and hip-hop painfully boring.
