Thomas Sowell, darling economist of the right, notes in Forbes Magazine (Feb
13, 1995, p.109):  "Some of the worst drivel in academia comes from professors
in fields such as English, where there are no breakthroughs to make, but who
still have to publish or perish.  What is a scholar specializing in Milton or
Shakespeare supposed to say that has not been said before?"  Sowell may be
reached at the Hoover Institution at Stanford, though I doubt that he really
wants to know anything about Shakespeare studies.    E. Pearlman
