i don't much concern myself with the royal family, but it feels nice to turn on the tv and see people enjoying themselves instead of the usual awfulness of the news. i get the cynical argument that it's just a distraction, but what's wrong with that?
the other news stories today would be:
another school shooting in the states
a plane crash in cuba
probably something kicking off in the middle east
donald trump has most likely said something
brexit, as usual
most of that stuff (brexit aside but that's been in the news daily for over two fucking years now), as tragic as it may be to those involved, concerns my life just as little, maybe less, than the royal wedding.
i therefore suggest that the news be made up more of people having a nice time. i think that'd be good.
(and please, United, win the FA Cup too. thanks)
