I think we in the media are giving it a heroic shot but — I don’t think the public is really feeling it for this royal wedding. Headlines like “Mr Bean Is Going” aren’t really helping. All the mystery has gone out of the royals. They’re just a hapless bunch of inbred fops. The hype for this wedding is a tiny fraction of what it was for Chuck and Di’s nuptials in 1981 — even though everyone likes Wills and Kate seems fine.
There hardly even was a media complex in 1981, comparatively speaking….and yet you could. Not. Avoid. The. Wedding. Of course I was in an extra-bad mood because the baseball players were on strike, and I watched the wedding coverage through a scrim of teen fury.
