    So WIlliam and Kate have a baby girl. I was watching part of it last night and they had a live feed just staring at the hospital forever until stuff happened. Kinda funny all the fuss about it.

    Here is live updates from London:

    Good for them, though I've never understood the obsession with the Royal family in this country. Anyone care to explain this to me? I definitely think it should make headlines, being its another addition to the royal family and all, and that in and of itself is news worthy. Just seems silly when mobs of people obsess over what Kate was wearing when she left the hospital. Or how her hair looked, or how she was holding the baby, and on and on.

    All the hype and coverage is pretty baffling. I went to the link you posted, and it actually has a live action counter, showing and I quote "Time since Duchess gave birth to a baby girl". As of writing this, the time reads 15 hrs, 06 mins, 14sec. ... why would anyone want or need this graphic of information?? All that said though, look at us talking about it. Clearly there is interest when someone makes a big deal about something, no matter how trivial you logically should think it is.

    I'm right there with you. I was talking with my girlfriend the other day about how ironic it is that we are so obsessed with the English Crown's family tree considering our nations history with it. Regardless, millions of Americans seem to know more about the comings and goings of Kate and William than they do of their own family members!
