Let it also be mentioned that Phil Silvers, character name "Harold
Hecuba" or "HH", denounces the performances as dreadful and then
proceeds to reenact the whole thing in high gear (with all the Stoppards
out?), playing all the roles him self until he finally collapses of
exhaustion.

Who says there's no such common culture any more?

You see, I was correct.  This is the advanced guard of the
Cultural-Materialist colonial invasion of the Americas.  They want to
bring us back into the Pale.  They want to stop us from reading
<italic>Moby-Dick</italic> and force us to read
<italic>Capital</italic>.  Let us say, "No in thunder."

Yours, Bill Godshalk
