      > Merlin, I am glad to hear that gawd save the king is not your anthem. Our anthem is actually an old english drinking music relyriced to the National anthem. You have a rebirth in the extremely handsome ,young royals you have coming up.The young princess is a dream and the princes seem human .
      I recently watched a movie about a roman legionaire who went back north of Hadrians Wall to reclaim his family honor.It portrayed the pre roman britons as wild people , hunter gatherers. Now it may be you need a reinfusion of new genes. That they seem to be near eastern and islamic does seem a regression in many ways. Go to our southwest and see the indian hispanics and you could not help being reminded of the pre roman Britons. Indeed the civilisations come and go but the ideas of personal freedom do not necessarily transfer the gaps. It seems we will always be civilising the barbarian but that is surly a rocky road up. The pope is headed to Mexico to mess up a troubled nation. how sad and regressive. Maby the cartel will get him. Bill
