The current King of Spain (that would be the General on the right) is abdicating his throne, elevating his son (that would be the Admiral on the left) to the position. Do they have a "uniform of the day"? "Aww, come on dad. You promised me I could be a General today." *pout*
The British Royals have long been obsessed with medals and sashes and braid, too. As long as the missus says it's OK I guess there isn't anything wrong with it.
Two-bit dictators seem especially drawn to uniforms, too. In their case I guess it does have some legitimacy as most seized power after stints in the military.
Even bad comedians are sometimes overcome with uniform envy.
Could it be it's America that is out of step with the rest of the world? Maybe we should jump on the uniform bandwagon, too.
Dubya gave it a rather lame try, but IMO he missed the mark. More bling, less "package", please.
Nothing else to report this morning. Just an observation for you to ponder.
