When I listed the possible duties of the Crown, I did not include the 
idea, as expressed by Earl Dafydd, that the King should behave in a 
manner that allows the populace to think and treat him as a King.  I 
think that perhaps Lady Karen and Earl Dafydd are right, and that this 
duty supercedes the giving of awards.

After all, if the populace doesn't think the giver of the award is worthy 
of respect, why should they respect the recipient of the award??????

It is a damn important relationship.

In Service
and grateful to his Grace, his Excellency, and the very-Dane-gerous,
