Richie Three? Ask in January!

We will know about the carpark king in about two months!  I've never been so excited about dental calculus in my life.  Everybody's holding their breath (because breathing on the bones can compromise 'em!) ...

Just one thing I've been observing, though.  Doesn't anybody else find the excess of froth about "proving he wasn't a hunchback/didn't have a 'withered arm'" - as if the Tudor slander that Richard was deformed reflects a *valid* value judgment, in that bone deformation actually is some sort of evil - ignorant and bigoted?  Because there is a LOT of ink abounding, in shrill reformation of this piece of history - and, as far as I know, there is actually no moral flaw in a body's not conforming to modern (or even ancient) expectations of normal health.
