Subject: Irvin Matus
There were a number of scattered postings in the last few months concerning
Irvin Matus and his reversal of fortunes. I happened to be at WGBH (Boston's
PBS station) last week, and in talking with the producer of *Frontline*,
mentioned the fact. She was startled as could be, mentioning she had just got
off the phone with Matus, and while he was calling from a cellular phone, it
certainly didn't sound as though he were homeless. Is someone playing a very
cruel joke? *Frontline* of course is going to be rebroadcasting their
authorship piece, called "THE SHAKESPEARE MYSTERY" and I am helping them to
link their webpage on it with VisNet's UNCOVERING SHAKESPEARE page. If there is
some animosity toward Matus because of his viewpoint, I think it's misapplied
to say the least.
