I had to share this article because my thought was, "Wouldn't that make a great premise for a fiction novel?" Of course, being SFR, there would be a liberal degree of spin applied.
As writers, we talk about getting "the call." How would you like to get "the call" that you're no longer a secretary, but a king!
I loved the ritual for selecting the next person to rule. The process might spur a lively debate; is it fate, devine intervention, or utter randomness?
What a great nonfiction story.
