No, not really... Most of the Texans out there only think of Kings in
the modern sense these days...if at all. The King of Jordan, King of
Spain, etc. Let's not talk of "King Clinton"...

Sorry to say this (not) but the title would not be fictional. The holder

OK, I'll go out on a limb here (since when have I ever not...*grin*) Is
it "make believe"? Or do we all, by our participation, make our dreams
come true? When does a philosophy based on honor, truth, and fair play
become the guide to our "everyday" life, rather than "make believe"? A
King or Queen are just that if folk say they are... A Doctor or Lawyer
are just that if they earn the title... No real difference.... (I can
hear the flames burning even now.....)
