You people are wonderful for helping to bring so much culture, history, science, and social programming to the Spokane area. Thank you for bringing us the Royal Wedding, as we love anything to do with our great friends and allies in Britain! (Hope you will inject many side-comments and trivia in the airing regarding past British history, especially with the monarchy.)
Respectfully, we thank you!
