For those who are still searching for popular culture references to
Shakespeare, here's one from the recent mini-AIR mailing (AIR is the

Macbeth 2000 does not modernize or change any of Shakespeare's

Songs include "Is This a Dagger", "Double Double", "Out Damn
Spot", "Hold Fast the Mortal Sword", "Tomorrow', and more.
