Congratulate me, for I have discovered the long-sought secret to perpetual motion: I shall simply harness the energy generated by the constant turning of Emily Post in her grave.

It was an unfortunate confluence of a discussion between S____ & myself (on manners), a very upsetting cable show on the trendy new cemeterians, and, the last straw, my running across yet another instance of someone who should know better referring to the Queen as HRH instead of HM*. I mean really. So a mounting evidence for the death of manners, dignity, and protocol just hit me like a ton of improperly folded calling cards.

*In a horse magazine; the last time was at a winery we frequent, as a caption to a photograph of the owners with the Queen. What is the implication there? That they know her so well they have forgotten her proper style and title?
