No sadness.   A full life.


Long live the king.

Crazy that she was a teenager during the bombing of London in WWII, and was still vibrant in her late years. Truly an amazing life.

96 years will tend to have it's ups and downs.  She lived a long life of extreme luxury.

Couldn't live with an Irish Catholic being in office at the former colony.

Is it a coincidence that JFK, Jr. has been spotted recently and now the Queen is dead?

I think not.

There's a reason why the vast, vast, majority of people admired and respected Queen Elizabeth and think much less of her scions.

A fascinating case study in the duality of a century of life lived constantly in the public eye and in high leverage positions.  No better example of how legacies are rarely black and white but ever evolving shades of grey.  She's viewed as beyond reproach and bathed in glory by some and pure evil by others.  Neither are totally true but such is life.

An incredible legacy in many ways at the forefront of modern history at the very least.

It actually wouldn't surprise me if the Monachy is finished within 10 years.  Maybe sooner.

She became queen as the war-devastated was getting back on its feet, served through the period when London became one of the world's preeminent financial centers and watched as Britain resumed its place of influence in the world.

Would love to have listened to Queen Elizabeth compare the greats among our American leaders -- Truman, Eisenhower, Reagan and Kennedy come to mind -- with some of our more recent offerings.

The Queen presided over the end of the Empire. She was a symbol of what Great Britain was and is. While I don't have a lot of respect for King Chuckie I of Tampax, Queen Elizabeth certainly left Chuckie with with an amazing legacy.

I mean... it's in the constitution, so I doubt it.  Charles will be around a couple of years, and then William will be King for decades.  He's cut from the same cloth as his grandmum.

Now's the time for the United States to take advantage of their leadership vacuum and finally take the provinces of Canada.

I don't think she was a big fan of American leadership for quite some time brother dgies.  And yes, Chuckle is a British Fredo in comparison.  She probably had tremendous anxiety over the last few years about a number of things going on in the world.  I thought she'd live to 103.

They can keep the French province.
