Oh, bringing in the big guns, huh. It must be worse than I imagined.

I can't even imagine what it would be like to have someone out to kill
me. It must be simply awful for the Royals. My heart goes out to them.
I can't believe there is a cause in the World worth all of this terror,
anger and pain.

Right again. And come to think of it, I'm sure none of them have done
anything worse than what our own symbols of leadership, ie. elected
officials, do everyday. It's just the point of view. In all, we seem to
expect congressman x is having an affair, and when it is revealed we're
not so surprised. I guess we all have ideas about the Monarchy being
somehow "better" than us commoners, and it shocks us to see them fall
to "human frailties". (that would be our ancetry showing?)
