This brings up another point:  Twice now (including the upcoming Curia),
this important meeting will have been held at one end of the Kingdom.  And
though I do not doubt that some intrepid soul will strive to travel that
great distance, in order to see that the south remains represented, it
remains beyond the abilities and/or resources of many of us down here to
drive that great distance for a single weekend.  As it is, things happened
at the last Curia that I am only now hearing about, and I am not sure what
else was decided for or against, or even the total of what was discussed. 
And now I am faced with yet another Curia that I will be unable to attend,
due to distance.
   With no disrespect intended to the Crown, past, present or future, I
find this to be terribly inconsiderate to hold such an event at one side of
the kingdom or another.  And yes, to be fair, I would not want Curia held
down here, either, for the same reasons.  Why cannot this all-important
meeting be conducted in the middle somewhere, where all have an equal
chance of attending?
