This week began with the end of the royal baby watch when the Duchess of Cambridge gave birth Monday to a baby boy. It turned out to be not only a happy occasion, but also the beginning of many debates. Did Prince William screw up plugging George into the car seat for his ride home from the hospital? Did Kate do fellow women a service by appearing for photographs with the remains of her baby bump still prominent? Or was the good undone by the less realistically attainable perfect hair, makeup, and clothes? (Where's the royal spit-up?) But perhaps the most productive discussions were those that involved the merits of the monarchy.
