"The problem with France..."

" that there is no king," says the vice-president of the Association for the Mutual Assistance of the French Nobility, in words with which any monarchist would agree. The Wall Street Journal reports on how in times when many cash-poor aristocrats struggle to maintain their ancestral properties, other nobles band together to help them out. These aristocrats are to be commended for their determination to carve out a role for nobility in the 21st century and preserve what is left of France's pre-Revolutionary heritage, though the obligatory reader comments on the article are almost uniformly depressing for a royalist to read.
