A Salute to Elizabeth Regina, Second of That Name

I would like to take a moment and salute Her Majesty the Queen, Elizabeth, Second of that Name, who celebrates 60 years on the throne today.

Ruling kings are generally swine, and those our generation has seen--the Shah of Iran, the Kings of Saudi Arabia, et. al.--are generally decadent, corpulent wastrels at best and tyrants at worst.

Elizabeth, Your Majesty is by far the best of your station seen since the death of Victoria.

(Oh, and a salute to your husband, too. Prince Philip looks pretty good for 92!)

God bless you, good lady, and may we celebrate your Double Diamond anniversary in ten years.
