The most heralded baby since, who knows when

It is a bit laughable how the birth of one little baby is such a well-publicised event that's drawn fanatics from all over the globe.

It's the sort of mass media madness that we usually only see for disasters and celebrity weddings/funerals.

To me, the hype over someone who someday will likely inherit the title of "His Royal Majesty" is enough to make me want to be a Republican (not to be confused with the US political party).

With all due respect to any family celebrating the birth of their newborn, there are more critical issues facing the everyday man and woman worthy of far more discussion and debate.

Mind you, I chuckled a bit when I read a suggestion that the new 'prince' could be given the name Joffrey.
