I can see the movie now:  we'll call it SHAKESPEARIC PARK.  With genetic
material recovered from a single hair follicle, a band of intrepid scholar
entreprene urs from the Deutches Institut fur Bio-literatur GmB clone the Bard.
 Unpredictably the eruption of creative energy threatens The World as We Know
It.  Heroic anti-Bard squads weilding metaphor-zapping palmtop computers loaded
with the Complete Works in all known languages desperately try to suppress
outbreaks of Elizabethan speech forms.  Clint Eastwood, Madonna, and Newt
Gingrich team up with the supporting staffs of the Royal Shakespeare Company
and Sony for a thrilling final reel confrontation between Bard and TWAWKI
forces . . .
 
P'rhaps to avoid clogging SHAKSPER with plot suggestions and screenplay
treatments we should move further discussion to the forthcoming Shakespeare
discussion site promised later this silly season.

>The mask has 1616 etched into it, and there are traces of hair.
 
If so, we have Shakespeare's DNA, and the relatively imminent possibility of
genetic reconstitution; Warner Communications might be interested in funding
the project . . .

Somehow two letters have disappeared from the reporter's name: it's Guido
Rijkhoek, just in case anyone wants to search for his account.  Sorry.
 
Yours, Bill Godshalk
