    I am a stickler for details, and so should you, but so many of you media folks (including that British idiot who took over from Larry King and who ought to know better) keep getting it wrong.
    Elizabeth became Queen when her father died in 1952. Her Coronation took place on June 5, 1953 and this is the bench everyone is using to determine the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, Thus on June 5, 2012 the Queen of England will have served ONLY 59 years and iis BEGINNING her 60th year. So when you all keep saying she' has served 60 years, and as one said 6 decades, you are all wrong. Get it right! COMPLETING 59 years (using the Coronation date) is NOT the same as saying she is in her 60th. year. So AGAIN, today , June 5, 2012 the QUEEN will have COMPLETED 59 years on the throne and is BEGINNING her 60th year. So this ought not to be her Diamond Jubilee.

    The correct pronunciation of Lagos, Nigeria is Lay-Gos as in "Lay-a-way", not "Lah-gos". Reports have been pronouncing it incorrectly all day. (I'm Nigerian)
