Has anybody ever considered how lucky the Spanish monarchy has been in regards to enemies? Without exception, its foes have always turned out to be either fools, or knaves, or both.
If the First Sp Republic had had a Gambetta, it would have at least lasted longer than barely two years; if the Second Republic had had a Kemal Ataturk or a Pilsudski, it might have won the 1936-39 War; instead, to quote TIME in its article about the proclamation of the 2d Republic, that regime--and, for that matter, also the previous one--had leaders of only ,,moderate'' ability--in other words, mediocrities and nonentities; 'tis the monarchists who always seem to have the big brains.

HM will not sail any of the tradional annual races this summer during the summer holiday at Palme de Mallorca's
summer residence of Marivent.The sailing is considered too much of a strain for the King who underwent lung
surgery a few months ago.

HM King Juan Carlos finally arrived in Palma de Mallorca today amidst speculation on his health.
HM underwent surgery a few months ago while he had his medical exams a month prior to
that and all was said to be well then.Then came the lung surgery a few weeks later.Now it is
the third time since the surgery HM left Madrid amidst speculation he has received chemo therapy
over the last period of time.The annual photo-shoot with the entire family has been cancelled
while Queen Sofia and los Principes de Asturias were photographed in abundance over the last few days.
Also,his doctors denied the King to go sailing as that would be too much of a strain for the Monarch.
Spain is worried.And so am I.How odd,two men,once rivals now at peace both suffering of ill health
simultaniously,Don Juan Carlos in Palma and Don Carlos Hugo in Barcelona.Please include both in your
thoughts and prayers.

Los Reyes attended the hand-out of the Copa del Rey at the marina,Palma de Mallorca.
Even heavy make-up can not conceal a teary-eyed Queen Sofia.
