That's why they call it ...

What was the problem with those ladies-in-waiting, Nation's Newspaper of Record?

An article on Page 174 this weekend about the idea of waiting for things as a cultural trend misstates the English period when a lady-in-waiting could become the king’s mistress or wife. It was possible during the Tudor era in England, as well as other eras, but not during the Elizabethan period. (There were no kings of England during the Elizabethan era.)

So ... not just Victorian prudishness?

I'm trying to imagine how exciting the rest of the magazine might be if you can get through 173 pages and still have "the idea of waiting for things as a cultural trend" before you. Not having a lot of luck so far.
