Respectful Insolence is a repository for the ramblings of the aforementioned pseudonymous surgeon/scientist concerning medicine and quackery, science and pseudoscience, history and pseudohistory, politics, and anything else that interests him (or pushes his buttons). Orac's motto: "A statement of fact cannot be insolent." (OK, maybe it can be just a little bit insolent.)
The Queen doesn't recognize some of my favorite guitarists
Brian May, Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, and Jeff Beck were all guests at a Buckingham Palace party to honor the British music industry. Unfortunately, the Queen didn't recognize them, asking them, "What do you do?"
Quoth Eric Clapton: "It's great to meet her and it doesn't matter at all that she did not know who we are or what we do," Clapton said. "I wouldn't expect her to."
