From the Bizarre File...

This is a day or two old, but I'm in the mood for a bit of lighter fare at the moment after the last couple of days of various mayhem, so I thought I'd share it with you. From yesterday's LA Times account of Charles and Camilla's visit to San Francisco...

Sunday night the couple, following in the footsteps of thousands of tourists over the past three decades (including Queen Elizabeth), took in a zany and flamboyant performance of the city's beloved musical revue, "Beach Blanket Babylon," touted as the longest-running musical revue in the history of time.
...
And for the finale, San Francisco chief of protocol Charlotte Maillard Shultz donned a Wonder Woman costume and flew briefly on a wire over the theater before her husband, former Secretary of State George Shultz appeared, ripped open his dress shirt to reveal a Superman T-shirt and "saves" her from the wire.

Afterward, the former secretary of State spoke directly to the audience about his respect for the British and then gushed, "So hats off to the British!"

If the news was like this every day, I could retire.

(Hat tip to Desi, who just can't get enough of those lovable royals...and the Schultzes)
