On When We Want Your Opinion On The Royal Baby We'll Beat It Out Of You, Just Like Mrs. Thatcher Would Have Wanted

I've never understood people who marvel at/are outraged by Americans' fascination with royalty. I mean, we're a republic, founded to get away from the awful tyranny of a bunch of oafish German inbreds, etc, etc. But that's precisely why we love them! We get to look at all the shiny accessories and titter at the funny hats without all the fuss of actually having to fund them and pretend they still rule our country! It's like why it's so much more fun to be an aunt or uncle rather than the parent: you get to do only fun stuff with the kids, but don't have to actually take care of the little brats.

On Why Is Woman So Disliked?

@Brian Calandra I love Richard, but I really have this feeling he hates her so much because he sees his own theater kid self in her to a discomforting degree. I'm not sure he even realizes it. I also imagine he has/had a lot of friends an awful lot like her, and the things that annoy him about them, but that his friendship papers over, come out full force in a celebrity he doesn't actually know.
