“Dear PoPville,

As a self-styled prince, I think you might appreciate this.

I’m not sure if Senator Strauss realizes, but Seborga not an internationally recognized sovereign nation, but rather a self-declared independent principality of Italy, with no independent political power. But because Senator Strauss has no independent political power either, it might be appropriate.”

Senator Paul Strauss tweeted:

“Such an honor to meet Prince Marcello & Princess Nina Menengatto of @PrincSeborga at the US #Senate today #Seborga”

also worth noting is the twitter exchange that followed:

From the Washington Post:

“Donald Trump’s recent statements disparaging immigrants make it impossible for my company and I to move forward with opening a successful Spanish restaurant in Trump International’s upcoming hotel in Washington, D.C.,” the statement reads. “More than half of my team is Hispanic, as are many of our guests. And, as a proud Spanish immigrant and recently naturalized American citizen myself, I believe that every human being deserves respect, regardless of immigration status.”

From Change.org:

“In light of Donald Trump’s insensitive remarks against Mexican immigrants, José Andrés should reconsider opening a restaurant inside Trump’s D.C. hotel, set to open in 2016.

José Andrés embodies the American dream, having moved from Spain to start a family and create one of the most successful restaurant chains in culinary history.”

Update: From the Washington Post:

“The Supreme Court on Friday delivered an historic victory for gay rights, ruling 5-4 that the Constitution requires that same-sex couples be allowed to marry no matter where they live and that states may no longer reserve the right only for heterosexual couples.”

A reader reports:

“Attached is a photo I took of a protest by the Armenian National Committee of America that I saw today at 12th & K St., NW. They were protesting outside the offices of Gephardt Group Government Relations, led by former congressman Richard Gephardt, who the protesters said represents the government of Turkey that refuses to acknowledge the Armenian Genocide.”
