It’s Royal Ascot Week in England, the week in which we hope all photographs of it are destroyed so as not to confuse future aliens who land on our abandoned planet and try to figure out the species that once roamed it.

Hats for women are required. Because: England.
About the blogger
Bob Collins retired from Minnesota Public Radio in 2019 after 12 years of writing NewsCut and pointing out to complainants that posts weren’t news stories. A son of Massachusetts, he was a news editor 1992-1998, created the MPR News regional website in 1999, invented the popular Select A Candidate, started several blogs, and every day lamented that his Minnesota Fantasy Legislature project never caught on.
