What are your thoughts about the royal wedding?

"I didn't think it's that big of a deal. There are a lot more important things in America than that wedding."

_ John Murphy, cellular phone technician, Norwich.

"I have a daughter who moved to England, and I was much more intrigued to watch. It was a wonderful juxtaposition of gentle kindness of a loving marriage with respect to tradition."

_ Lynda Calkins, homemaker, Oneonta.

"I wasn't really interested in watching it. Just two days before, all those people died in the tornadoes, and more coverage time was spent on the wedding than what happened in the U.S."

_ Laurie Meyers, unemployed, Morris.

"I watched it. I thought it was nice, but I don't know why we're so caught up in it. We're half a world away and weddings happen all the time."

_ Joshua Lawrence, computer technician, Sidney.

"I didn't get a chance to watch it. It was my birthday, but I celebrated for them."

_ Raven Ross, teacher, Oneonta.

"It's not in this country, and I don't know why people get so into it. There are more important things that need to be in the news. People get married every day."

_ Amanda Stevens, office clerk, Binghamton.
