If it were me, I would be thinking, for both transportation and lodging possibilities, of looking on Craigslist. Also, if I were desperate, perhaps a homeless shelter, or, as others mentioned,...

I believe she's been Queen for about a year and a half longer than that article says. She was Queen before her coronation -- her reign began upon her father's death, right? Sadly for Trump, that...

Yeah, there was no information about whether she had health insurance, although I guess you could make the same assumption I made about car insurance -- it's required that she have it.

I didn't catch the year correction. I also had already edited to remove that it was modeled after the 1967 winner specifically, because I wasn't sure that was right. As you found, it looks like...

From that last link you can see it's a 1980 model that's been modified to be a "Monte Carlo replica" meant to look like a Monte Carlo Rally car. Apparently it's a thing people do with Minis. For...

She could exceed the limits of the policy, but because it happened in a car crash, she should at least have some insurance that covers her injuries.

These criticisms, which multiple people have agreed with, don't fit in either a) or b). And one of the criticisms is false.

I have no problem with a) and b), and fully agree with them.
