Prince Harry in New York

Concluding a successful visit to New York City on a lighter note in contrast to Friday's somber visit to "Ground Zero," Prince Harry delighted onlookers at a charity polo match. MSNBC has video here.

I hope that someday the writers of articles about Prince Harry will not feel obliged to routinely bring up the same 2005 and 2009 incidents as if they constitute some sort of significant deplorable pattern. They don't. What's deplorable is the culture of political correctness that would have people live in perpetual fear of saying or doing something that might offend somebody, and attempts to paint a good-natured, fun-loving prince as some kind of "troubled" or "insensitive" delinquent in need of redemption and reeducation.
