As many noted, the SHAKSPER digests for Monday arrived from 1980 not
from Y2K. The fault was not Bowie State's. I send those digest, as I am
sending these, from my home computer, which for some inexplicable reason
reset itself to 1980. 1980 was not a particularly thrilling year nor was
the decade much to be remembered. High points for me were the birth of
my first daughter in 1981 and being awarded my Ph.D. in 1988 (some
twenty years after completing my Bachelor's).
Well, as Philip Henslowe (make that Geoffrey Rush) was fond of saying,
"It's a mystsery."
