Thank you to all who have responded to my query about the literary device of
naming a character after a prominent trait.  In the meantime, my coleague who
originally asked the question searched the NY Times crossword puzzle index and
the OED and came up with the term "euonym" (adj. "euonymous") which means
"Well or felicitously named" (OED).  It comes from the Greek "eu" or "good"
and "nym" or name.  The example given is from the Saturday Review: "The Peace
Society and its euonymous president, Mr. Pease."  Has anyone actually heard
this term before or located a more familiar one?

Ever since 1969, Rice University has been the home for a wonderful musical
comedy called _Hello, Hamlet!_  It includes such show stoppers as King
Claudius's solo, "I Enjoy Being a Ghoul," Queen Gertrude's "The Queen Business
is Mean Business (If You Know What I Mean)" and the number about madness, "How
Do You Solve a Problem like Ophelia?"  I don't know if it's done every year,
but I was startled to learn it was still being performed when I was there for
a visit about five years ago.  Can anyone from Houston tell me?

Many gopher servers offer the option of emailing text files to arbitrary email
addresses. This may serve as a substitute for FTP in many instances. Of course,
for very large files, email may fail to work, leaving one preferring FTP. It is
common practice to place files accessible via gopher in public FTP directories,
but of course, that is not a mandatory practice.

I think the first speech in Twelfth Night is funny.  When Orsino asks
for "that strain again," I imagine that the musicians repeat it until
he says "Enough, no more,/ 'Tis not so sweet now as it was before."

I remembering reading that it was determined in favor of "the poacher from
Stratford."
