She was very well-respected, and it's certainly sad when anyone that beloved passes away. She did seem to be very generous and caring, and the world will be a little dimmer without her presence. That said, I do think we should use this opportunity to begin the process of divesting ourselves of the archaic system of monarchy (a *foreign* monarchy, no less). But I also realize that we won't. NGL, not looking forward to seeing Charles's face replace Queen Elizabeth on our money. But I guess I very seldom have actual physical cash anyway, so it's not like it's going to be a common occurrence for me.
