"Cinderella," were you there?

Ha no, I wouldn't fit in with that crowd.

I don't think it's productive for me to keep commenting here so I'll try not to get lured into it again. But I have no problem with you (or your review of that book). And yes, when I get a chance I'll check out the articles you mentioned in your comment on the other post.

And royal watcher isn't the same thing as royalist. I wonder if you're aware of what's going on with the monarchy in Nepal? Royalty isn't entirely history, at least not yet. There's more than one battle being fought in this world. Good luck to you.

I stared at those pictures.

It was like a bunch of white people from upper class hell.

We don't even look the same.

I posted a link to them because I want to show my readers the people who control print-media and publishing in this country. The ultra-privileged, who are as clueless about their own nation as were the Bourbons in 1789. It's because of these people that we see monstrosities like "The Clique Girls" and such in large bookstore displays, promoting to the new generation the ideals of hierarchy and snobbery. THIS, at a time of unparalleled inequality in America. SHOULD there be a literary revolution against this?
Absolutely!
p.s. Anyone who calls herself Cinderella can't be all bad-- though I question her role models!
