Dear SHAKSPEReans:

I'm not sure how many have noticed but traffic on SHAKSPER has been very
high of late, requiring two to three hours for me to edit and post the
submissions. Yesterday, I made several mistakes.

First, SHK 10.500, the first digest of the day, was extremely long.
[Delete long story about two daughters, one eighteen and suffering from
jet-lag; the other five and a half, enough said.] I made a decision to
deviate from my normal procedures and sent the digest as an attachment
rather than as a mail messages. [Delete even longer story about what I

received the digest garbled. If you would like to receive a copy of SHK

misspelled his last name in the Header as Kevin J. Donovan

Again, I offer my apologies: Robert Miola is a noteworthy authority and
a kind and gentle man.

Contritely yours,
Hardy
