"Obey" in wedding vows

Okay, I'm seeing some discussion in the press now about the fact that "obey" won't appear in Will and Kate's vows. I remember this being discussed back when Wills' parents got married and I'm surprised it's even garnering attention now. Isn't this pretty much the norm today? I haven't heard a bride vow to "obey" her husband in ... ever. Mrs. Mendalla certainly didn't. None of my friends' wives did. Why is this even news if it's what most people are doing?

Why I don't want to work for MI-5's royal security detail

This article from The Register is amusing. It describes how UK security folks have had to plan for what to do if Kate makes a run for it tomorrow.

Having to do this kind of detailed planning for highly improbable one-off events is why I don't work in security. Although, come to think of it, we do some of this in IT as well when we do disaster recovery planning.
