Unfair, Henry, very unfair.  I asked and I asked and I begged Richard not 
to try to bring the discussion of problems in Atlantia into the 
Principality debate.  I said it was irrelevant.  I said principalities 
were for FUN and not for solving Atlantia's PROBLEMS.

But His Grace wouldn't listen.

This is an entirely different thread that has nothing to do with MY 
principality debate.  And I'm very sorry you stumbled unto it accidently, 
but don't try to fix the blame on the principality debate and thereby 
suggest that it cause for irritation (I'm not really saying it is Bren, I 
just know others will ;-)).
