Bag’s Take-Away:
The rich are truly different from you: I guess it’s not considered proper form for the sister of the future queen of England to be Starsky-and-Hutching it around Paris. This photo shows Pippa Middleton riding in the front seat while the friend driving threatens paparazzi with a gun. The friend later apologized and claimed it was a toy gun. 
Still, I think he’s off the Royal invite list.

Bag’s Take-Away:
Skid Row. The media and the royal couple made a lot out of visiting L.A.’s most desperate neighborhood. When it came to showing anything of the locale, however — Will and Kate attending a children’s painting class at the Inner City Arts program — the visual media mostly missed the opportunity (beyond a cheap example like this).
The NYT summary, with a frank rundown of the trip’s choreography, heavy as it was on high society, glamour and glitz, did offer a snap from the sidewalk outside the painting class.  It seems the local press — it’s L.A. after all! — had the best opportunity to show something of Skid Row. Given this window to engage the eyes of the world, the LA Times did deliver three examples, the most realistic offering a corner market, cops on bikes and a crowd of fans, mostly from “Greater LA.” In the most compelling image, however, the neighborhood is relegated to a stage set for a plate and a parasol.

The Boston Globe nailed it… it’s a do-over. 

What a set-up, though. It’s like telling Michelle Obama on inauguration day we’re expecting the next Jackie Kennedy.

Bag’s Take-Away:
Interesting how Lego reverses their heights because, one assumes, of the mega-big deal of a royal bride, and, even more, a potential Queen. Brits not toying around here. Start of the buildup.
(Diana, who?)
inothernews:

Lego does Prince William and Kate Middleton.
The Lego fanatics among us know that those 1 x 1 decorated tiles in the floor are super, super-rare.

I guess some people just wanna be ruled over.

Unconscious commentary on the state of marriage?
