You kids get off my lawn. 

Where should Richard III lie?

I, like many nerds, followed with interest when they found the last Plantagenet king in a car park in Leicester a year and a half ago. While I thought finding the subject of one of Shakespeare's great political hatchet jobs was neat, the Ricardians were the star of the news reports for me. What a bunch of charming weirdos! Who even obsesses over the reputation of a 14th C king? Now there's a long legal row about where RIII is to be interred, starring another group of Ricardians who are even weirder. The quotes from the exasperated British scientists and academics are priceless.
