  • Queen Elizabeth II

    Posted by Jonathan on April 21st, 2006 (All posts by )

    The Queen turns 80 today. I wish her all the best and hope that she lives to at least 120.

    (Thanks to Rachel for the reminder.)

      An interesting juxtaposition with the post immediately below, isn’t it? No hard feelings, Your Majesty.

    2. Jonathan Says:

      Much time has passed, much has changed, and she is no George III. I don’t see any irony here.

      God save the queen!

      Well, you rebels can always plead for mercy. :)

      If someone as intelligent, astute and decent as Elizabeth II had been the Queen in the years prior to the American Revolution, it would not have happened.

      I will always remember the Queen ordering the Guards to play the Star Spangled Banner after 9/11.

      While America should not have a king, it suits the British and the British are lucky to have her.
