Changing the subject

From "Merchant of Death" to Middleton's marriage...  Two hours to showtime and News Stream was suddenly heading in a different direction.
 
The subject of my very first blog, like our lead story, was supposed to be Viktor Bout.  I've never seen "Lord of War" but the quotes are fantastic.  For example, "Can I go now? You got nothing on me... except cuffs."  I was excited.
 
But after eight years of courtship (British people still say courtship, right?) Wills and Kate decided they should announce their wedding plans today.  And apparently they've been engaged since October.
 
After a bit of pouting, I remembered I should be upset with the royal handlers and not the happy couple.  So congratulations!
 
Many people are now recalling Prince Charles and Diana Spencer's wedding.  A quick Google search tells me some 750 million people around the world watched.
 
That fairytale-feeling of 1981 may be hard to recreate... but here's hoping they'll put on a good show.

    I like the valuable information you be offering to your articles. I can bookmark your newsstream.blogs.cnn.com and feature my children test up right here generally. I am slightly positive they are going to be informed quite a lot of new stuff here than anybody else!
