Queen of the Netherlands

Posted in Personal by Will on Thursday, April 30th, 2009 ~ 4pm

The event in the Netherlands is terrible, of course — a murderous driver colliding with a parade to horrific effect.

But I am trying to find some trace of something good, not in the event but in what I have learned about that country, and that trace of good is in the fact that there exists a country in this world where there is a “Queen Beatrix” and a “Princess Maxima”. Their names sound like they are from fairy tales. Though I don’t approve of monarchy, with such fantastic names I’ll let them slide.
