    (Not) Remembering Princess Diana

    Yeah, today is the 10th anniversary since Princess "Di" died. Yeah, this post goes against the global grain of deifying just another person.

    It is sad for her children - to be left without a mother, but other than that I'd give her a C- when it comes to being royalty.

    Yeah, she did lots of goodie-good stuff, with cameras around. But so do many other celebrities - again, if those cameras are rolling and a reporter or two are around to capture their "good deeds".

    There is nothing in the world that is better because of her brief stint as a Princess. Heck, the inventor of the microwave oven deserves greater honors.

    You can read all sorts of reasons for her timely death; from blaming her fatal crash on popperotzi to the usual government conspiracy. All sorts are to blame - but I blame her bad judgment.

    A Reuters article quotes her son Harry:
    She will always be remembered for her amazing public work. But behind the media glare, to us, just two loving children, she was quite simply the best mother in the world.
    In reality, I'd have to search the internet to find what she did - hardly memorable. I'm sure she visited Africa since it's the favorite place for a celebrity to make it look like they're doing something for humanity - then their entourage leaves.

    As far as "best mother"? She preferred to go out partying than stay with her young boys - others attended to that. She preferred life in the fast lane, rubbing shoulders (and more) with the rich and famous. If only she spent her time with her boys she'd still be alive today.

    As far as royalty, Princess Diana wasn't able to stay within the strict life required of a person in such position. Yeah, lots of people liked her for that but she married into an institution and if she was unwilling to abide by the lifestyle she should not have married into it.

    Well to all the people that want to wail and bereave a total stranger that left some phantom legacy - have a good day. To me she's just another person that died in a car crash.

    Rumor has it Senator Larry Craig is considering switching to the Democrat party - where deviant sexual behavior in public places between homosexual men is considered normal. Many Democrat-controlled states are forcing acceptance and even public school teaching - that queers are better than normal - they deserve special rights.

    Homosexual males are the only segment of society that solicit and engage in sex with their own gender in public places - parks, bathrooms, camp grounds, highway rest stops, etc.

    A representative from the Democrat committee has told Senator Craig to meet him at the 2nd stall from the right at an undisclosed mall.
