THOUGHTS: Browning and ADA
Thpse who notice aspects of a "conspiracy theory"
amongst certain devotees of the late princess,
and recall the Browninglike lines in Ada, may
also note Browning's:

She had a heart too soon made glad....and
liked whate'er she looked on....She smiled,
no doubt, whene'er I passed her; but who passed
without the same smile? This grew; I gavc
commands. Then all smiles stopped together.

(Another John Rea making his comment on this poem: pardon
the whimsy of one with his right arm in an iron hard cast
from knuckle to shoulder -- typing is tricky. I'll try to
catch up on correspondence when "out cast"
