I like these people. I feel so much sympathy for them. Closed off from society. Closed off from life.

Yes, I agree with sandegohiv. it's lonely when all of your time is dedicated to being, "Emperor and Empress". I wish they could take off their shoes and run through the sprinkler or just have fun like they did when they were children. They deserve fun and play time too. I wish them all the happiness.

Aquino ''Let me demonstrate the new Philippine death grip. I intend to use it against those expansionist Chinese. Ha ha ha!'' Akihito ''This looks interesting...''

And again the Empress demonstrates her impeccable style. Such a beautiful lady.

A true royal couple. Aquino, on the other hand, is a corrupt, money-grabbing, self-centered slug who only won the election because he's related to a previous president.

Great sentiments. It would be so nice if people would let them be free and enjoy themselves.
