    Oh how sad. But I am so pleased that she got to see her before she passed. Robin must have a very strong faith, she has been through so much.

    Oh my goodness.

    I'm so very sorry for Robin and the rest of her family.

    My prayers and thoughts are with them, and with Robin in particular as she forges ahead on her journey without her mom, but with Sally Ann and other loved ones beside her.

    Wow! Good thoughts and best wishes to Robin while she fights her new opponent, MDS. Now she doesn't have her pillar of support with her. How much more suffering does she have to go through? I hope she beats this disease and comes back to GMA soon.

    Best thing that happened to that royal family was Diana bringing in some new blood and, thereby, creating those 2 beautiful boys.

    I couldn't agree with you more. Those beautiful, golden boys.

    Here are two articles from People regarding the "Emily cheating scandal". The same day they talked to People for the first article, both Jef and Emily escorted Ricki to her first day of school and then were photographed shopping at a grocery store. There was no scandal, cheating or otherwise, though hard feelings toward family may linger.
    Jef and Emily were together here in Salt Lake last week at an outdoor concert. They got up on stage, and he introduced her as his fiance and talked about moving to NC, so it seems they're still together.

    I think the debate rests here. What on earth does this mean? The royal family is tradition, for sure, but archaic. Their place in government means nothing. King? Queen? Prince? Princess? This is all Disney Land sh*t.

    The royals (particularly the queen) actually do play a role in government, both in the UK and in the Commonwealth (admittedly mostly symbolic, but still part of traditional government practice). Sure,you can debate whether the monarchy should be abolished or kept, but as of now and the foreseeable future, their role continues.

    As for Diana bringing in new blood....same as with any bride marrying into the family, really. It's not like she was a "commoner" like Kate.

    As someone I used to work with would say, "Yes, you and I both know what should be. I'm telling you what IS."

    Like CCL said, the debate about whether the monarchy should or shouldn't exist is a completely separate debate. What is fact is that it DOES exist and that Harry, as a part of the royal family AND an officer in the military, is held to higher standards of behavior. Whether that should be the case isn't the issue. These are the facts of Harry's life and the facts of the government and monarchy in the UK.

    I wonder if, say, a President's son, who was also a military officer would be held to similar standards in this country. Would we all be laughing if a "first son" behaved this way under similar circumstances? All familial ties aside, the military doesn't look favorably on that kind of behavior. If drugs were involved and, God forbid, Harry was involved with that AND there's proof, I wonder what the military will do. Is that grounds for discharge in this country or do they not care?
