Big day for His Imperial Majesty

Today is a religious holiday in the Rastafarian calendar, marking the date of Haile Selassie's 1930 coronation as Emperor Haile Selassie I, Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah, Elect of God, King of Kings of Ethiopia.

One of my young grand-daughters bears his name, though she is no relation, has none of his titles and spells it differently.

Gosh. I bet she's the only girl in her class called Selassie!

"I" -- what a lovely name.

and i dare say she spells it like all women do. "mememememememe"
