On Her Majesty's Secret Serving

As of yesterday, I am a subject. A British subject. A subject of Her Majesty.

No, not an object. A SUBJECT!

In the narrow green room in Ealing Town Hall I did faithfully swear by Almighty God that I would serve and obey Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, and her Heirs, according to the law.

Also yesterday, David Beckham became an honorary Angeleno.

I'd like to think of it as a cultural exchange between our two great cities.

L.A. gets Beckham, London gets me.

me = englander
