[Lady Weakbody of Shakespeare's Skum asked me to pass on the following message
to members of the list, and in particular, Blair Kelly III -- mike field]
 
Swounds! You are indeed correct, my lord. After reading your note, I did go
back to Master Shakespeare. He hit me over the head and muttered, "Wrong again,
Weakbody!" Comedy of Errors is indeed the shortest play. My confusion began
after I had read that the Scottish play was the shortest of the *tragedies.*
Shakespeare's Skum is mortified at the mistake, and shall correct it for this
week's show. I shall be happy to call all of your friends and tell them that,
yes, you are in fact quite a smarty-guy!
