Subject:        Letter to Harper's -- Coda

There is a similar problem with censorship at the Washington Post, which
published the latest crack-pot authorship theory a couple months back.
The reporter responsible for the article clearly had no clue as to the
facts- informed readers that John Shakespeare was illiterate, etc., the
usual Oxfordian crapola-and when I corrected his loose grip on reality
he never printed my response, sending me a pages-long diatribe about
scholars and how ignorant we are.

His refusal to do his homework and rely on hearsay only confirmed my low
esteem for the fifth estate.

The struggle continues ...
