Does Anyone Care?

Does anyone really care? Honestly?

About the wedding of one of the British royal family princes (I forget which one) and a very attractive girl named Kate. Is this really worthy of the American media's full court press?

I imagine that if you polled most Americans, they, like me, would not be able to recall exactly who was getting married. However, we can all recite the gas prices for all of the different stations within five miles of our houses.

It's not that I have anything against the people getting married or the pomp and circumstance surrounding it. The British have this wonderful institution that is almost the only thing anymore that distinguishes them from Canada, sorry to say. It is interesting and draws large numbers of tourists, but I think that most Americans just are not as enthralled by the whole spectacle as they have been in past years. This is likely because we are still trying to figure out why we attacked Libya, how we will pay our debt, and how we will pay for fuel in the coming months.

Sorry, Britain, it's not your fault that we're not interested this time. Of course the media is jumping at the chance to cover something, anything that does not result in Obama looking worse and worse.
