Royal marriage

Big ba-da-boom in Sweden. Tension about the big game was loudly interrupted. Media-coverage here is exclusively devoted to the news that our crown princess and her farmer are engaged.

Journalists are terminating vacations, published magazine-editions are canceled, reproduced and people are fanatic.

This used to mean a lot. Like, who would run our country and lead our young, brave men to war against Russia, Denmark and other foes.

What it means today is more diffuse. Just that we’ll soon have little farmer’s princesses and princes running around the castle. In other words back to the fifteenth century faster than you can type Google.

* Whatever - he'll never be king.
