The Coming of Seabiscuit



I heard the funniest thing on Headline News this morning regarding the American tour of Prince Charles and his wife, the Duchess of Cornbeef... err, Cornwall. They said, "The American public could not be less interested..." Why the disinterest? Are we over the royals?

From People.com, "The day played out with Charles's visit to the United Nations, where he met Secretary-General Kofi Annan. Camilla then joined him for an all-star reception at the Museum of Modern Art, where the New York Post said of Camilla's "dowdy" blue-velvet dress: 'Queen Camilla is New York's Frump Tower.' Still, many of the paper's columnists found her extremely gracious." Meaning, Seabiscuit's hard to look at but she's got a sweet spirit.

Camilla does not compare to Princess Diana, we all loved her, and if you tell me you didn't watch her early 80s wedding, I'll say you're lying. Who can forget seeing the late Diana dancing with John Travolta, or that great red dress she wore to a state dinner? Not to mention the tragedy surrounding her death? Where are the icons of today?

Maybe Angelina Jolie and all the charity work she's currently doing, and her torrid relationship with Brad Pitt. Maybe Colin Farrell and his plight to stop the posting of his sex video on the internet. I don't know, nothing compares to Princess Di's class.

There will never be another Di. They just don't make them like that anymore.
