I've been pretty busy this week, so I haven't had time to prepare a decent post. However, this little item caught my eye. Aside from the little unpleasantness with the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812, Great Britain has been a pretty important ally and friend of the United States. Personally, England and Wales are among the very few places around the world that I'd like to see, no doubt because of my own Welsh heritage and love for English literature.
If the United States has to thumb its nose at a country, I can pick a few where it makes sense to do so. But this insulting breach of protocol doesn't bode well.
And they called George W. Bush a rube.
