Japan's new prince named in ancient rite

"Japan's long-awaited male heir to its Chrysanthemum throne was named Hisahito — meaning 'virtuous, calm and everlasting' — in an age-old imperial rite in Tokyo on Tuesday."

Keeping with my poor choices in last weekend's football pools, I had my money on the baby being named "Bob".

You had a bad first week in the football pool, join the club Diane. My Cowboys effed up and lost, but the Raiders who I hate were blown out! That made my week so much better

This male baby is going to overtake his girl cousins and cruise to the throne, because he is a male and no other reason.

Wonder if his poor auntie (and the crown princess) will now have pressure put on her (at 42!) to try AGAIN to produce a male heir? She is already suffering depression from all the pressure.

ffleur - being a member of the Japanese Royal Family is not too appealing . . .

ryan - the Raiders were worse than in my wildest dreams . . .
