MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — I have to come out of the closet on this one. I am obsessed with the Royal Wedding. I woke up early, watched the whole thing, checked out British newspapers on line and even did it again today.

Why? It must be that I need an escape. Escape from the news that is so ugly: Young, innocent people being shot in the head, sexual abuse by monks, devastating killer tornadoes and the list goes on.

Then there is the dreary and depressing weather that smothers us with dampness and cold at the very moment we crave and so deserve a warm sun. I need a break, a bit of fantasy, beauty and glamour. And I guess the only place I can get it is across the pond, via the telly.

God Save The Queen, or whatever the Brits like to shout. God save them for being able to put on a show second to none.
