Subject:        Shakespeare Reference

As long as we're updating our Shakespeare references.....

During the weekend of SHAKSPER's troubles, I listened to the following
exchange on This Week (a weekly new program in the US).  Note George
Will's Shakespearean reference-is he referring to alcohol or Falstaff
statement, "the better part of valor..."?

BILL BRADLEY: I have used marijuana several times in my life, but never
cocaine.

COKIE ROBERTS: Senator, on guns and violence

SAM DONALDSON: Excuse me, Cokie. Recently in your life?

BRADLEY: No.

SAM: When you were a kid?

 BRADLEY Well, yes. Right. Have you?

SAM: I think a couple of times I've tried it. And I inhaled.

BRADLEY Have you, Cokie?

COKIE: Oh, listen, I was so pregnant during those years. The senator ...

BRADLEY: George? Who wants to know?

GEORGE WILL: No.

SAM: How come you give George a pass?

GEORGE: No. I'm from the Falstaff generation.

COKIE: Can we get to guns and violence?

GEORGE: That's my Shakespeare ...

BRADLEY: Shakespeare, that's right.

COKIE: The--you wrote an Op-Ed on guns ...

Cheers,
Scott Oldenburg

In Orlando FL, according to Tom Rapp-don't ask how we got on the subject
until tonight okay-is an all nude dance club that was closed for
licentious, bawdy and indecent behavior.

It reopened recently and is being allowed to remain open because while
they are still nude dancing etc., every night is an all nude production
of some Shakespeare play.
