Funny thing- we went to see "The Princess Bride" on Red Rocks this week, and I was struck by the underlying political plot of the film. You have a corrupt and evil prince who decides to plant false intelligence blaming Gilder for the kidnapping of his popular bride-to-be, thereby starting a war. Nobody's sure why he really wants to start the war, but he has this whole elaborate plan on how to kill his wife and blame the sworn enemy of Florin for it.
Sounds familiar, right?
What really tied it up for me was when the Prince is telling his advisor that he'd heard that Gilder was going to murder Princess Buttercup. The advisor guy says "Our spies have heard no such thing."
Now if we could only find our own Miracle Max to help us get out of this mess.
"Have fun storming the castle!"
Well, while you all ponder that, here is a vacation picture for you:
