In that case, I can see them using Phillip or Doria to honor family members. Both go with Sussex. Somehow I wish they’d go with something slightly medieval, befitting her wedding dress and St. George’s.  Doesn’t have to be Aethelred or Wiencing or Tidburgh but maybe Abbey or Aurora or Emilia or Olivia.

You’re right - jerks microwave smelly things in the group break room. Sexual predators conspire with a pal to set up a rape room next to the bathroom that they know girls at a party will need to use. They then lie in wait for a girl to use the restroom and push her into the room they’ve set up to assault her.

Not surprising that it’s George Mason, since it’s part of the right-wing cabal that installed him in the first place. But we need a name for this kind of thing. It’s reputation management akin to greenwashing. They’re trying to whitewash his reputation by putting him into other “reputable” situations.

My guess is Grace, after Grace Coddington, one of her style and feminist-artistic icons.  Grace Mountbatten-Windsor has a lovely, traditional feel but is also modern.  For a boy, I think they’ll go the Alexander route. Robustly old-fashioned and hip at the same time.

No way. Middle name maybe (though Kate and Will already did that with Charlotte), but I doubt Harry is eager to incite the extra voracious press feeding frenzy that would come from naming his daughter Diana.

Usually I think there was a bench or something.  The people would sit down and the attendant would string a rope across their fronts to keep them in place.  In his graphic novel on the killings, From Hell, Alan Moore has a scene with one of the women staying at one of them and the attendant wakes the women up by Read more

Never. In a million years, they will NEVER name their child Diana. They would be out of their minds to saddle their daughter with a name containing as much baggage as ‘Diana’. AND, if the child does become a princess, what then? The *new* PRINCESS DIANA? Uhh, no. Never. They will never do that.

I just wanted to add to your comment with a pic expanding on your explanation of doss houses for ppl. I wish could find a picture from a better source than pinterest, but this does resemble the pics I’ve seen of doss houses in documentaries and etc. The people below are literally paying to sleep across a rope for the

Having read extensively on the Ripper in the past one of the depressing things was just how incredibly common violence against working class women was in Victorian London.  There’s five “canonical” Ripper victims, but some writers put the number much higher because there were a bunch of other women murdered in Read more

It was originally announced that the law school was to be named Antonin Scalia School of Law but they changed it when it was (immediately) pointed out by everyone on the internet that the acronym spelled ASSoL. How good is that?!

The sad truth about the Whitechapel murders is that it was about the only thing that got ‘genteel’ London (and the world) upset about the conditions that people in the East End had been living in for decades. After the murders, many of the worst slums were torn down and replaced by proto-council housing and Read more

In theory, yes. In actuality, not necessarily. Admissions offices try to put together certain kinds of classes, a holistic way of judging among candidates with equally good grades and test scores, so there’s no guarantee that the kid who lost a seat at USC because of these parents’ machinations would easily pick up a Read more

I too do not understand how this would work. The child has to know whether she took her SATs or not, and those results are, IIRC, electronically transmitted directly to the schools. If someone else sat the exam with a phony ID, was that a retake?

It’s not right that a deserving student who worked to get into the college of their choice should lose that opportunity because another kid cheated to get in.

I like the way you think. Make her put a deserving student through school. Or, hell, maybe five or six. That’s restitution I can get behind.
