I really enjoyed reading Scott Ostler's wry and witty commentary on the events at Wimbledon. He is always clever and makes for good reading but this tid-bit, " . . . the Duchess of Windsor stuck her head out of the Royal Box twice," takes the case for macabre humor.
Of course, he might have been referring to the Duchess of Kent, but the idea of using a corpse (and hers, of all people) to brighten up things amid all that bad weather is a very amusing and original idea.
