Modern problems: Part Tres

"History shows again and again how nature points out the folly of man…" Blue Oyster Cult, "Godzilla"

Maybe elites can make marriage cool again

It's hard to figure us Yanks out, my British friends say. We still go simply gaga over royal weddings like the upcoming nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton. Yet we historically rejected royalty -- and increasingly we're even rejecting marriage.
