Elaina here.

That's it exactly!  Having lived frequently in principalities,
the term "coronet" for a baron just seems odd to me.

And, add to that, that growing older in the Society is not
always a picnic.  The more things change, the fuddier and 
duddier I become.  And it's a hell of a thing for a 60's
Berkeley hippie type to see herself becoming a fuddy-duddy.

Anyone out there interrested in organizing an AA support group?
