Subject: RE: BS: Where were you when.......
Oddly enough (for a Yank) I was in Cambridge, motoring to Ely, and my wife noticed that the flags were at half-staff. She asked why, and I replied that I had no idea, not being British. When we got to the cathedral in Ely, a service was going on so we waited quietly in the back. The Bishop his own self then addressed the small congregration, stating the "Last night, Diana, our beloved Princess of Wales was killed in a traffic accident in Paris." I thought, "Well, that makes it easier for Chuck."

Two days later I was in London, awaiting an early flight and DAMNED glad that I had confirmed accomodations (and confirmed prices!).
