Subject:        Tangent to Byron Comment

Having read a bit about Byron's private life, and in particular having
read some of the correspondence between himself and his wife (and other
sundry bits of informative stuff), it is pretty clear to me that Byron
was incestuous, and had a good number of other illegal (for the time)
appetites as well.

Brilliant poet, but I ask you, who can stand to read the whole of Don
Juan these days?  It's so incredibly indulgent, and filled
stabs-in-the-back for all his friends and kin.

He is also reported to have said, in response to a compliment on his
hair:" Yes, it curls naturally every night."

He was wicked, but not a patch on our Will.
