During a tour of Westminster Abbey last week, President Trump and the Queen paused before a tribute for Lord Byron, a jewel in the crown of British literature. A diplomat would take the opportunity to pay homage to the great poet. Instead, the Yankee asks about the flooring.

The flooring? Really?

It makes perfect sense for a real estate developer to ask about the flooring, but it takes a statesman to cement the bonds that hold nations together. Sigh. I wish Will Rogers was still around. And Twain. I'd love to hear what they'd have to say.
