Edward and Mrs Simpson

karsh_edward_simpson.jpgListening to NPR this morning and they mentioned Edward and Mrs Simpson. A new TV program 'l Wallis Simpson: The Secret Letters' is set to broadcast next week in the UK. The Scotsman online ever-so eloquently writes "Wallis Simpson, the woman for whom Edward VIII abdicated the throne, may still have been in love with her husband, unseen letters have shown."

It's an excuse to re-post this image and story:

I got an inquiry from someone who was on their cell phone in a supermarket. I could have sworn he asked about pictures of Henry VIII. It took a while to work out he was talking about some guy who taught the Duke of Windsor to play golf. He hung up on me after accusing me of trying to hold his project hostage with my licensing fees.
