Martin Green writes
 
" absolutely yes, I do dismiss a large portion (but maybe not, as Mr. Appelbaum
suggests, 9/10) of the contributions to this list on "matters interpretive" as
pure hot air: sometimes interesting, to be sure, but all too often creating
ill-will and "flaming" on unimportant points and unprovable propositions."
 
A critical yardstick, by all means Mr. Green.  But what makes you think your
own post is exempt from this criticism?  You provide an unprovable proposition
(the association, through Southampton, with prominent Jews), an incitement to
ill-will (is "hot-air" not intended to be a flame?) and several points of
questionable importance.  Joining the balloon race, after all?
 
Airily,
John Owen

Martin Green, in his long and interesting response to Rober Appelbaum, says
that Southampton was Shakespeare's patron. I know Shakespeare dedicated two
poems to the Earl, but do we know exactly how the earl responded?  I ask this
question, not to begin a heated quarrel, but to see what hard facts can be
adduced that Shakespeare was indeed patronized by Southampton.
 
Yours, Bill Godshalk
