I should be off at a professional gathering (there's this job I  
need...) :-) but a quick message here.

I've glanced through the several digests I've already gotten and my  
email. Thank you all for your replies both pro and con.

One correction. The lady's father does NOT have his Laurel yet. The  
King has apparently just threatened that he ever wants one he needs to  
reel in his unruly daughter. So there isn't a problem with the Crown  
removing a Peerage, which apparently can't be done except by the BoD.

There have been some useful suggestions made on re-writing the article  
such as bringing out that this is a worst-case scenario and isn't to  
be expected at every event but is still something to be on guard  
against. She is considering doing a rewrite. I hope she can stand up  
to the local and Royal pressure and do so. She is a stubborn young  
lady and I think she will if she is the only one affected, but she  
also doesn't want to see her father hurt who has worked so long for  
his Laurel. Me? Well, I'm probably already known for not obeying a  
Crown just because they are the Crown and another bit of non-political  
correctness is not likely to affect my Peerage prospects.

There is no question on removing the article from the Florilegium if  
that is what the author wants me to do. I don't like to do that. If I  
don't think something is a good useful message or article, it simply  
doesn't get into the Florilegium. And I thought that this was a good,  
useful article that would warn folks about some things. I thought that  
since it was written by someone not much older than a teen that they  
might be more likely to listen than they would to us older folks or
