Queen Bea Visits Turkey

Photobucket - Video and Image HostingNo, she didn't go to the White House; the actual country of Turkey.

The visit has various geopolitical ramifications: Turkey's been pledging the EU for years, and a little hospitality like this plays well on the world stage. Also, given how many Turkish guest workers there are in the Netherlands, and with a rising tide of violence both in and from these (mostly Muslim) communities, it doesn't hurt the Hague to play nice either.

Here's what the Turkish Daily News had to say; if you so choose, you can chase it with a little something from DutchNews.

PS: Her Majesty's birthday was on 30 January; a belated Happy Birthday Ma'am.

Weekend At King Peter II's

Photobucket - Video and Image HostingWhat is it all of a sudden with dead people that no one wants to bury or leave buried? In Anna Nicole's case I could see, because the toxicology analysis of her was on par with Woodstock, but His Majesty's been dead since 1970.

Well, if it helps them in restoring their monarchy by giving people a place to flock to, I guess I'm all for it.
