Princess Juliana and the media

Princess Juliana of the Netherlands has died, so the country is becoming an island for the rest of the weekend. I agree that the death of a former monarch deserves a lot of media attention, and I'm actually somewhat interested in it, but the media here are covering nothing else! As if the world economy, the war on terror, the democratic process in the USA and all other important issues are taking a breather out of respect for a member of a small country's royal family member who has been retired from active duty for a generation.

Still, it's not entirely wasted on me. She did lead an interesting life, after all.
