Prince William's wife, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, is pregnant.

The media is going way overboard with the news. CTV national news on Monday, use it as the lead story, eating up 5 minutes of coverage. At the same time, war rages in Syria, tensions tighten in the Middle East with the Palestinean/Israel conflict, bombs going off in Pakistan and Afghanistan.

In North America, unemployment remains high, The Fiscal Cliff looms in the US.

Yet, the pregnancy of Kate, fills the headlines. Hundreds of millions of women give birth every year. So why is there such huge interest in this event? Are we expecting the 2nd coming of Christ?

It's a non-story. People have babies all the time.

Hopefully we've abolished the monarchy by the time this silver spoon-fed child inherits the throne.

95% of all news (especially the garbage people post on here) is non-story stuff that happens all the time

doesn't stop you lot from pretending to care about it

I'd much rather watch happy news about her than about all the killings, wars, crimes, etc. going on...
of course it's fluff but better than unfortunate stuff, the world's depressing and stressful enough as it is

John 3:16
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.


Jesus LOVES YOU!
2012, meet Matthew 24:36-47!

14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

Considering this could become the future king/queen of England and thus Canada, I say it's pretty important news. Whether you believe Canada should still be ruled under a monarchy or not, the UK thinks otherwise.

I was in Kindergarten when Diana died. But millions of women die each year.
Over a billion watched last year's wedding. But millions of couples get wed each year.

Hmm, why is there so much interest in these events? Because it's the royal family. It beats everything, even the fiscal crisis, even the Middle East crisis, even the Olympics.

Or have you just been completely oblivious to the royal gossip industry your whole life? You asked a really stupid question.

Exactly. It'll be nice to see the child grow up if he/she ends up being the future king/queen.

Don't give a crap, and we don't need a monarch.

Do away with the royals already.

So at what point did being cynical just to be cynical become chic?

Saying we don't care but then taking time out to post about it means you care. If you really really truly didn't care you never would have bothered.

Grats to the lucky couple. Hope everything goes well for them.

Important news my arse.

Couldn't care less. William and Harry a lot more likable than the other royals, but I'm still not interested in the slightest.

I don't care so much about the affairs of the Princes... but say something against Her Majesty? It's on.

i'd turn on the tv if it was the 2nd coming of christ.

For the sake of answering the title question.. no, I don't care. Wouldn't affect me one way or another whether I knew or not.

The Royals are just normal people, the only reason why they're rich and famous is because their ancestors probably said this before anyone else could get this kind of idea: I now rule you, bow down and give me all your money

Exactly. I was going to say that I don't care all that much, but I don't "not care" enough to start a thread about it...
Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!

Because it's actually Daniel Craig's kid.
