I was unfair to Steffan and I offer my apologies.  Sometimes my desire
to see all parties involved get the fair amount of embarrassment simply
means I get my share also.

Balynar, that was my point.  Pointing a finger on the Rose like that is
inappropriate when considering its purpose, IMHO.  I have tried over the
last 6 months or so to keep the purpose of the Rose in perspective and
have done very well.  I know I have improved with my uhhhh... courtesy
challenge in all things electronic.  This one got the best of me,
though.  We rarely see a post from HRM here, and few from His Queen.  I

I can't fault TRMs for wanting to keep Kaylin unaffected.  Regardless of
other opinions, I know what it is like to be away from your children for

the argument for knowing the "duties" of the Crown before entering the
tournament, show me the law where the King AND Queen must be present at
every feast, court, etc., at events which they attend.  Hmmmmm.  People

that, but hostility or belligerent swipes serve no one.  Nothing wrong
has occurred.

Thanks Corun.  You're right.  Oh, BTW, I'll watch my contractions, too,
