"Queen Victoria, who, far from being repressed and frigid, possessed that rare form of female maturity that enables a woman to love a man more than a child. In a letter to her oldest daughter she freely admitted: 'I often grudged you children being always there, when I longed to be alone with dearest Papa. Those are always my happiest moments.'

American men are desperate for women like this, but what they get is a self-inflated neurotic growling Joan Crawford's signature line: 'I'll do anything for those kids, ya hear me? Anything!'"
